Nominees have been selected based upon comprehensive, independent survey work with both general counsel and private practice lawyers worldwide. Only specialists who have met independent international research criteria are listed.
Who’s Who Legal editor Rupert Wilson said: “This is our most comprehensive and thoroughly researched competition publication yet, with thousands more votes and recommendations received compared to last year. We are hugely grateful to the lawyers, clients, experts and other market sources whose invaluable feedback helped to identify the foremost practitioners in the field.”
