From the Editor
The Legal 500 United Kingdom Solicitors 2022 rankings are now live. Please select a region from the menu to navigate through to the practice areas you are interested in.
Welcome to the home page for The Legal 500 United Kingdom – the leading guide to law firms and solicitors in the UK. More than six million users visit The Legal 500 website each year and this guide offers those buying legal services, reliable and up-to-date information on the firms operating in the dynamic UK legal market.
These rankings reflect the results of detailed analysis of law firm submissions and thousands of interviews with GCs and private practice lawyers, conducted by our team of experienced researchers in accordance with our guidelines.
In addition to ranking law firms and listing leading individuals by location and practice area to help in-house counsel make an informed choice, the guide also allows law firms to benchmark their own performance against their peers. Every firm ranked – and individual mentioned – in the UK Legal 500 UK Solicitors guide is ‘recommended’.
This year, in a new addition to the London guide, we have introduced a ‘firms to watch section’ highlighting the best up-and-coming firms operating across a range of practice areas. This is intended to shine a light on those likely to make their mark on our rankings in the years to come and will be extended to the rest of the UK guide from next year.
As the UK editor I would welcome your feedback and ideas about how we can bring the rankings to life throughout the year and ensure that they reflect a changing UK legal market, where diversity, value for money and the ability to make informed decisions are more important than ever.
