Our teams have years of experience in advising law firms on all aspects of leading legal directory and award providers submissions — including Chambers, Legal 500, and IFLR1000. Our size (over 60 staff and growing) and breadth of expertise enable us to work across large international law firms and cover multiple practices, with a wealth of experience that includes former editors and researchers from all major directories. In fact, our founder Jacob Aitken was the editor of the first three editions of Chambers Latin America and co-founder Daniel Kidd was the founding editor of Chambers Asia Pacific.

What makes us particularly unique is that our team houses deputy editors and researchers of Chambers USA, Chambers Europe, Chambers Global, Chambers Latin America, Legal 500, Legal 500 USA, Legal 500 Europe and Legal 500 Latin America. Founders Jacob and Daniel have been assisting clients with their submissions and improving their rankings for well over a decade.
