What is Top Ranked?
Top Ranked was set up by two legal publishers, each with over 20 years’ experience in law firm rankings research and publishing at Chambers and Partners and Euromoney. Now for the first time there is a one stop shop for both clients and law firms to access easy to use, comprehensive ranking data.

Clients can easily search for Top Ranked firms by name or look at overall country or regional rankings to get straight to the information they need quickly. By taking into account the top rankings from trusted organisations, we offer a more comprehensive global view of law firms’ capabilities. Collective results are far more accurate than those made in isolation.

Do you conduct your own research/do I need to submit?
We research the researchers and each market we cover. We individually assess the accuracy of rankings and then select which research to use in which markets.  Our rankings are derived by using our own unique algorithm.  We take into account the rankings firms receive from a number of trusted publishers. These include both generalists and specialists.

We concern ourselves primarily with the quality of those rankings together with the quantity and the relative weightings we assign to each, to produce tables which can be read in two ways. The Overall Rankings show firms’ positions on a more quantitative basis and if you click on a particular practice area you can see the more qualitative rankings for that area alone.

How do you choose which ranking sources to use?
We use market feedback from a cross section of firms in particular jurisdictions and regions to determine the most trusted sources for each country.

Does any firm with a ranking get on Top Ranked?
No. To be listed in a Top Ranked table, you must be exactly that: recognised as a leading firm in the country, region and/or practice area.

How does a firm get ranked in TR?
To even be considered for Top Ranked, leading firms must be recognised in the upper tiers of the rankings tables of trusted research organisations.

Can firms pay to be Top Ranked?
No. Firms cannot influence our rankings. Research and sales are two separate departments.

Do you rank lawyers?
Top Ranked Lawyers is currently being researched and will be released in June 2020.

Who is Top Ranked aimed at? (end user)
Top Ranked is aimed at the clients of law firms. Whether that be corporate counsel, law firms etc.

What does Top Ranked offer the client that is unique?
Top Ranked holds the belief that a consolidation of leading rankings, aggregated on quality, is a far more comprehensive view, supported by the overall market opinion of the law firms and legal markets.

My firm is ranked in a different ranking guide but not in Top Ranked, why?
Top Ranked only considers the upper tiers of ranked firms from any of the trusted research led publications. A ranking alone does not automatically qualify a firm to be Top Ranked.
