Chambers ranks both lawyers and law firms based on the research of 150 full-time editors and researchers employed at its head office in London. Its researchers and editors speak over 20 different languages and conduct in-depth telephone interviews with lawyers and clients around the world. Individual lawyers are ranked (in their practice-area(s)) on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service. Law firms are ranked on the qualities of their lawyers and the effectiveness and capability of the firm as a whole – its strength and depth. These factors and considerations are judged: (a) by interviews with those active in the market – mainly clients (who can be law firms instructing other law firms) and other lawyers with whom the law firms work; and (b) by assessing recent work done.
