The secrets behind Chambers and Partners ranking methodology

The Chambers and Partners’ ranking methodology is notoriously shrouded. Although securing a place is testament to your expertise, it can be difficult to know how to rank highly in Chambers’ 200 different jurisdictions.  Chambers’ cumulative ranking strategy means previous years’ research is considered when making the current year decisions. This is why submissions may take three to five years to come into fruition, highlighting the need for short and long-term submission strategies. Considering work for imminent research cycles alongside the current opportunity solidifies your reputation and future.
