The Chambers UK guide is published annually, each October, covering 50 cities and counties in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

/documents/Logo-resized.png#asset:3021:urlThe directory covers over 70 specialist areas of law, with the most developed practice areas, such as Corporate / M&A, Banking & Finance, Employment, Litigation and Real Estate being covered on a city-by-city basis. These cities are grouped by regions, such as South West, Midlands and Yorkshire, so clients can compare firms across a broader geographic area.

The Chambers’ ranking tables and commentary, therefore, are fixed at the date of publication for the following 12 months. However, factual information, such as mergers or lawyer-moves, is kept up-to-date on the website throughout the year.
