We are the largest team of legal directory and awards consultants in the world. With every one of our consultants an expert in all major legal directories and awards. That’s alongside our first-hand experience of the whole process as former Chambers and Legal 500 Editors and researchers.
We work globally with law firms who want to benefit from our expert services. Who want to ease the burden of the legal directory process and the effort spent preparing submissions. Simply put: we give back time to your internal business development and marketing teams to do more of what they do best. While also enabling your lawyers to spend more time on billable work.
Many large law firms, especially in the UK and US, benefit from outsourcing their entire directory process to our team. Confident that we will be responsible for everything, from advising on strategy to drafting the entire written submission. That includes gathering and writing work highlight descriptions and co-ordinating the client referee process and partner interviews.
We are the only legal directories consultancy with a dedicated team of co-ordinators who assist firms with the client referee and partner interview processes. With up-to-date knowledge of all the major legal directories and awards providers, our consultants also have excellent working relationships with editors and researchers.
Our unique dedicated co-ordinators are committed to enhancing your rankings success. From working across post-submission processes and client feedback, to scheduling and advising on partner interviews with directory researchers.
We’re proud that our legal directory consultants have an impressive proven track record. Improving firm and individual rankings, and securing major awards, for the world’s leading law firms.
It’s evident by the fact that the vast majority of our law firm clients work with us from one year to the next, thanks to the year-on-year improvements in their rankings.
“Kidd Aitken were able to add a whole new dimension of understanding, drawing on their first-hand experience as former directory researchers. Ultimately, we were rewarded by our largest improvement in Chambers ever. I can’t speak highly enough of the insight that Daniel Kidd and the Kidd Aitken team brought to the process. We have no hesitation in recommending them”.
“The Chambers/Legal 500 submissions process is often quite daunting for law firms. Jacob Aitken has helped our firm implement a long-term strategy for improving our rankings, and under his leadership we have seen real results. Not only have we improved our rankings in many areas, but we have also managed to educate the lawyers and ease their concerns about this process along the way.”
Daniel Kidd is intimately familiar with the research process of the legal directories. In addition, he really took the time to get to know our market and each of our practice areas, and gave us honest advice about our strengths and weaknesses. This was reflected in our submissions and in our results: our strong practices were recognized and highlighted, and we received honest feedback about how to improve our rankings in the future. The key is credibility; the directory researchers know when they’re being misled, and Daniel Kidd has earned their trust. We feel our firm’s capabilities were thoroughly but fairly presented to the legal directories, and that the legal directories portrayed our firm fairly as a result.

We found Daniel Kidd’s advice really helpful last year. He helped us get the rankings that we’ve long thought we deserve, but had never previously managed to achieve.
Eugenia Navarro has a deep knowledge of the market, and provides excellent research. She understands legal industry pricing strategies, business models and brand positioning, and has strategic a overview in everything she does.
We have been working with Daniel Kidd for quite a while now and his advice has always been a great help. He has a deep knowledge of the internal procedures and demands of the relevant legal directories and provided honest feedback on our submissions. His support has helped us to improve our firm’s profile.
We have worked with Daniel Kidd for several years now and he has provided very valuable insights into the research process of the major directories (such as Chambers and Legal 500). When launching our new law firm Cresco we went through a thorough exercise for the positioning of our practice areas, which proved to be very useful. Cresco was immediately recognized as a leading firm in its core practice areas. Daniel is efficient, highly knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jacob Aitken for over eight years. Jacob is an outstanding professional committed to delivering results in every task he undertakes. He has a deep understanding of the legal market and is very sensitive to customer needs.
If you need prompt, honest and to-the-point strategic advice, Daniel Kidd is the point of contact. His advice was especially critical for us after the launch of our new firm last year when we needed to ensure the ranking positions we deserved (including Band 1-2 rankings in our key practices). We have received the results we wanted and continue to cooperate with Daniel.
I emphasize in particular Lidia Zommer’s ability to “connect” with others, and her speed and ease of understanding of situations and needs. She has the ability to find appropriate solutions, and is always available.
We have been working with Daniel Kidd for some time now and, since the beginning of our relationship, he has proven to be of great assistance and value to our firm by helping us administer and obtain as much value as possible from our relations with Chambers &a Partners, Legal 500 and Latin Lawyer, and has improved our firm’s rankings within such publications.
Daniel Kidd is responsible and professional. He understands his client’s needs and provides accurate advice to achieve such goals. We are very pleased with the work he has done with our firm and recommend him without hesitation.
