About The Legal 500 Series

The Legal 500 Series, now in its 26th year, is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal referral guide. More than 250,000 corporate counsel are surveyed and interviewed globally each year.

The Legal 500 is an independent guide, and firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit. It is the only guide to truly reflect the needs of corporate counsel by focusing on the strength in depth of the teams (practice and associates) rather than simply list individual partners.
