Legal 500 2019 – Our results

Legal 500 is considered by many as the leading global rating agency for legal services and also for having the most precise survey methodology. The results in Legal 500 are made through interviews and surveys among clients, attorneys and other lawyers. This is supplemented together with a review of the business and development of the individual law firm over the past year.
