The Chambers guides have been ranking the best law firms and lawyers since 1990 and now cover 185 jurisdictions throughout the world. Chambers ranks lawyers and law firms based on the research of its 150 full-time editors and researchers, as well as information submitted by law firms and in-depth telephone interviews with attorneys and firms. Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by the client.
