An In-Depth Guide to the Legal Experts


Richard Freeland, London editor and David Kelly, regional editor of The Legal 500, introduce the 2005 edition.

The Legal 500 was the first clients' guide to law firms and, over 18 years, has developed into the largest and most in-depth survey of the UK legal market.

We analyse the practices of more than 800 law firms and more than 150 sets of barristers' chambers. The Legal 500 is a unique book.

With nearly two million page hits per week, it is one of the world's largest legal websites. We also publish The Asia Pacific Legal 500 and The Legal 500 ( Europe, Middle East & Africa, covering over 80 different jurisdictions.

Our findings are seen by a huge range of clients, not only international businesses and FTSE companies. In 2004, over 100 local newspapers and trade titles covered The Legal 500's findings, with circulation over 3.6 million and a readership of more than 10 million people.
