Chambers USA honorees are selected on the basis of submissions put forward by legal practices, interviews during the course of research and the Chambers own database resources. Individual lawyers are ranked (in their practice-area(s)) on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service.
A law firm ranking relates to a department of the firm, not to the firm as a whole. These factors and considerations are judged: (a) by interviews with those active in the market – mainly clients (who can be law firms instructing other law firms) and other lawyers with whom they work; and (b) by assessing recent work done.
Internal meetings are held by researchers, deputy editors and editors to go through the research they have conducted and to compile and approve the ranking tables.
