 “The main aim of The Legal 500 is “to help corporate counsel” through our law firm rankings and editorial, which are free of charge to access on this site…. with The Legal 500, you can view our rankings of firms, which are based on feedback from 250,000 in-house peers and our access to law firms deals and confidential matters, which are independently assessed by our researchers. The resulting tables rank the firms, and also provide editorial context to help you judge which firm might be right for you. The only way a law firm can get into our ranking tables and commentary is on merit alone – if our researchers think it is good enough for inclusion. It is not possible for a firm to buy its way into the editorial David Burgess
