Who‘s Who Legal Submission Deadline

We offer simi­lar con­tent in Thought Lea­ders: Women in Law, a new addi­ti­on to our Thought Lea­ders series that aims to put women in the legal sec­tor even more pro­min­ent­ly through Q&A and other con­tent. All short­list and win­ner decis­i­ons are inde­pen­dent and are made by an IFLR1000 panel of regio­nal edi­tors and rese­ar­chers. Each short­list is the cul­mi­na­ti­on of months of rese­arch, ana­ly­sis of hundreds of sub­mis­si­ons, inter­views with thou­sands of review­ers and inter­views with hundreds of lawy­ers. Plea­se cont­act us to tell us why you or peo­p­le in your com­pa­ny should be con­side­red for admis­si­on and in rela­ti­on to which field of acti­vi­ty or natio­nal poli­cy sec­tion. In almost all cases, we ask for con­fir­ma­ti­on of exper­ti­se by sub­mit­ting tes­ti­mo­ni­als from cus­to­mers, whom we can cont­act for an eva­lua­ti­on. The­se must be pro­vi­ded in the for­mat spe­ci­fied in our arbi­tra­tor tem­p­la­te. Once we have recei­ved suf­fi­ci­ent feed­back to estab­lish refe­ren­ces as a poten­ti­al can­di­da­te, prac­ti­tio­ners can be added to the preli­mi­na­ry list of can­di­da­tes for fur­ther con­side­ra­ti­on. As more dead­lines for fil­ing legal direc­to­ries for the 2022 gui­des are announ­ced later this year, we will be updating this list, so check back regu­lar­ly for updates. You do not need to send us sepa­ra­te quo­tes for count­ries cover­ed by Cham­bers Glo­bal if tho­se count­ries are cover­ed in one of our other gui­des (UK, US, Latin Ame­ri­ca, Euro­pe, Asia Paci­fic). We do not cont­act refe­ren­ces for the who­le of Euro­pe unless they rela­te to inter­na­tio­nal trade/WTO or regu­la­to­ry and public affairs, for which we encou­ra­ge review­ers and sepa­ra­te sub­mis­si­ons — if you have any ques­ti­ons, plea­se cont­act Cham­bers Europe‘s Rese­arch Director.

A sub­mis­si­on is a set of fac­tu­al infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded by law firms and lawy­ers in a par­ti­cu­lar area of exper­ti­se. In con­junc­tion with other sources, this infor­ma­ti­on helps us deter­mi­ne whe­ther a com­pa­ny or indi­vi­du­al should be clas­si­fied in our gui­des. Cham­bers and Part­ners requests infor­ma­ti­on on diver­si­ty and inclu­si­on as part of the rese­arch pro­cess. Down­load and use the Word Docu­ment tem­p­la­te for your sub­mis­si­on and the Cli­ent Arbi­tra­tor tem­p­la­te in Excel. Visit our US sub­mis­si­on page here for more hel­pful tips and tricks. *Plea­se note that we accept sub­mis­si­ons from com­pa­nies based world­wi­de and crea­te ran­kings for each juris­dic­tion whe­re we have suf­fi­ci­ent busi­ness evi­dence and cus­to­mer feed­back. Regis­ter your details via the link below to recei­ve IFLR1000 search announce­ments and news­let­ters. Throug­hout the year, we pro­vi­de updates on the pro­gress of our rese­arch, inclu­ding essen­ti­al infor­ma­ti­on such as time­lines, tem­pla­tes and gui­de­lines for search forms, as well as access to new­ly published rese­arch and edi­to­ri­al con­tent. The IFLR1000 lawy­er ran­king cate­go­ries are pri­ma­ri­ly based on pro­of of tran­sac­tion, cli­ent and peer feed­back. If you nomi­na­te lawy­ers for a cate­go­ry by sub­mit­ting a sub­mis­si­on, plea­se include at least three examp­les of each applicant‘s work in the rese­arch cycle in the “Tran­sac­tion High­lights” sec­tion (using Word or Excel tem­pla­tes) and three review­ers (using the Excel tem­p­la­te) who can pro­vi­de feed­back on their work. Lawy­ers can also pro­vi­de feed­back on ran­kings and the legal mar­kets in which they operate.

Rele­vant and reaso­ned comm­ents will be con­side­red when we find sup­port­ing evi­dence. Sin­ce 2013, WWL has been con­duc­ting an annu­al pro bono sur­vey whe­re com­pa­nies from around the world are invi­ted to sub­mit in the form of a detail­ed ques­ti­on­n­aire on the pro bono acti­vi­ty of com­pa­nies. The results of our rese­arch are published annu­al­ly on whoswholegal.com, and the com­pa­ny that has done the most out­stan­ding work over the past year has been named WWL Pro Bono Firm of the Year. For the inclu­si­on of new IVD cate­go­ries, the appli­ca­ti­on pro­cess con­sists of two pha­ses: pre-sub­mis­si­on and full sub­mis­si­on. For the pre-sub­mis­si­on pha­se, appli­cants must pro­vi­de back­ground infor­ma­ti­on so that the EDL Secre­ta­ri­at, in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with WHO dise­a­se con­trol pro­gram­mes, can deter­mi­ne whe­ther they can be sub­mit­ted for a full sub­mis­si­on. Suc­cessful appli­cants will be asked to sub­mit a full sub­mis­si­on with more detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on, inclu­ding all sup­port­ing docu­ments requi­red to include the new test cate­go­ry. Other types of appli­ca­ti­ons con­sist of a one-step sub­mis­si­on pro­cess. Coun­try sub­mis­si­on is used for both gui­des. For seve­ral years, WWL has con­duc­ted inter­views and Q&A with pro­mi­nent lawy­ers and in-house coun­sel to rai­se awa­re­ness of the spe­ci­fic issues faced by women in the mar­ket­place and high­light the chal­lenges asso­cia­ted with suc­cess in the legal pro­fes­si­on as a woman. Over the past 12 months, WWL has con­duc­ted its sur­vey of legal advi­sors and gathe­red feed­back from legal mar­ket sources to iden­ti­fy the best lawy­ers and in-house teams in the world. The results will be announ­ced shortly.

The firm has been pro­du­cing legal mar­ket intel­li­gence sin­ce 1990 and remains the only inter­na­tio­nal legal mar­ket rese­arch brand focu­sed on ran­king law firms and lawy­ers based on finan­cial and cor­po­ra­te tran­sac­tions.

For quick orga­niza­ti­on, you can sim­ply add this data direct­ly to your own calen­dar for quick refe­rence. Our rese­ar­chers fol­low deve­lo­p­ments in the legal mar­ket (tran­sac­tions and law firm news) throug­hout the year to inform their rese­arch.
