Welcome to The Legal 500

The purpose of The Legal 500 is to help corporate counsel find the right advisors through our law firm rankings and editorial, which are free of charge to access on this site. Our rankings are based on feedback from 250,000 in-house peers and our access to law firms deals and confidential matters, which are independently assessed by our researchers.

The only way a law firm can get into our ranking tables and commentary is on merit – if our researchers think it is good enough for inclusion. It is not possible for a firm to buy its way into the editorial.
