The Law, the Global Elite Law Firms and Lawyers by Continent and Country

* 2018 List. 2019 to be released soon.

Africa

Africa

With its 56 countries and being the world’s second largest continent, law in the African continent combines a series of diverse law systems. From common law, customary law, civil law and religious law it still comprises very particular law systems, uncommon in the so-called developed countries.

Although these systems tend to become less common, especially in non-rural areas, the rich natural resources and growing businesses, call for legal systems that are, in their essence, globally recognized and adapted to our 21st century global society. It’s a difficult continent for law firms to establish new offices in these jurisdictions but in most cases it becomes quite profitable in some key practice areas.

Asia

Asia

Law in Asia is undergoing rapid change and modernization, especially given the economic growth in China and India. Although the diversity created by the different cultures of its 49 countries, results in some cases, in specific law systems that are inherited from ancient systems and with a strong identity.

Most Asian countries share a substantial heritage with European law, whilst keeping their own distinct identity and with the growing economic and financial status, some of the emerging markets are seen as having the right opportunities for global firms to invest and set offices in several Asian jurisdictions.

Australasia

Australasia

Australasia, which includes New Zealand, Australia, Tasmania, and Melanesia: Papua New Guinea and neighboring islands north and east of Australia in the Pacific Ocean, is by itself a continent where its law systems are mainly aligned with the Australian law system.

The law of Australia comprises many levels of codified and uncodified forms of law. These include the Australian Constitution, legislation enacted by the Federal Parliament and the parliaments of the States and territories of Australia, regulations promulgated by the Executive, and the common law of Australia arising from the decisions of judges.

Europe

Europe

Europe, with its 50 countries, encompasses a set of diverse law systems that change fast. Europe saw the birth of both the Roman Empire and the British Empire, which form the basis of the two dominant forms of legal system of private law, civil and common law.

The European Union's Law is based on a codified set of laws, laid down in the Treaties. Law in the EU is however mixed with precedent in case law of the European Court of Justice. In accordance with its history, the interpretation of European law relies less on policy considerations than U.S. law.

North America

North America

The law of North America is diverse and influential. The law of the United States has worldwide renown, in its codified constitution, and bill of rights, while the law of Cuba differs vastly in its regulation of private property.

The first court of justice was established in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in 1615 by Sir Richard Whitbourne as a court of admiralty at the future site of Trinity, Newfoundland and Labrador

South America

South America

The law of South America is one of the most unified in the world. All countries can be said to follow civil law systems, although recent developments in the law of Brazil suggest a move towards the stare decisis doctrine.

Moreover, all countries have recently signed up to the Union of South American Nations agreement, which aims to establish a system of supra-national law along the lines of the European Union.
