To be included in such esteemed company is testament to the hard work and skill of our team in Wrotham Road, and the resulting satisfaction expressed by our Clients.”

The Legal 500
First published in 1988, The Legal 500 has developed into the largest and most in-depth survey of the UK legal market. They analyse the practices of more than 1,000 law firms, and more than 220 sets of barristers’ chambers and Scottish stables.
The Legal 500 is a unique book. There are other surveys of law firms and chambers, but none is researched and written by such a team of experienced and award-winning writers.
When reviewing the performance of a firm the publishers use various criteria taking on board a combination of size and strength in depth. Their assessment will be influenced by all the things that make the complete practice in that field.
Understanding the firms is only one aspect of the research process. Ultimately, it is the clients’ opinions that matter; the 75,000 or so references taken up this year are a vital component of the evaluation of the various legal markets covered in this guide.
