The Process Summary

An overview of how the process works

The awards and ranking process is processed based on our internal research, which may include external data sources for specific metrics, and processed through our proprietary algorithms.

Our team then interprets all processed data. Not very common yet, the ranking is adjusted if required. The primary metrics are the law firms’ expertise, brand value, transaction values, deals count, headcount, number of offices, global presence, total partners, revenue, communication, social responsibility, and innovation, among other metrics that are unique to our processes.

Annual Legal Awards’ Categories

Country, Sub-Regional, Continents & Global

The Annual Legal Awards program has four main categories – Country, Sub-Regional, Continents, and Global. To enter the Country Awards category, each firm must have at least one, or more offices, in that same country. It does not necessarily need to be the firm’s headquarter. The same rule applies to the Sub-Regional, and Continents’ Awards.

The Global Awards is the top category. Here are included the law firms that, globally, have the highest rankings during the year.

Law firms can win awards in multiple categories. It all depends on the rankings achieved at the child category as well as the limit per segment.

It’s then essential that all law firms have their office locations’ information updated. This way, we can include each law firm in its correct and corresponding categories.


The Lawyers Global® Annual Global Legal Awards list is achieved based on the criteria and methodology summarized in the respective section.

The Lawyers Global® reserves the right to remove any law firms that, proving their identity, request the removal of their listing from this listing.

The latest total assessed firms were above 29,000. From this total, several firms were very close to the possibility of becoming part of the restricted list of the elite law firms awarded this last edition.

In subsequent years, those firms may enter the list of the best law firms ranked and awarded by us at The Lawyers Global®.
