Welcome to Benchmark Litigation – the definitive guide to the world's leading litigation law firms and lawyers.

Benchmark Litigation is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on dispute resolution work. Since its inception, the Benchmark brand has grown dramatically and garnered industry-wide accolades as the definitive hub for in-depth analysis of the players shaping the dynamic practice of litigation. In keeping with Benchmark’s sharp rise in popularity, its publishing staff increasingly aims to respond to the demands of its audience.

Benchmark Litigation researches and ranks law firms and lawyers on the basis of transactional advice. Each year we ask firms to provide annual submissions to support our research. 

Research is conducted through extensive interviews with litigators, dispute resolution specialists and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, we examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to provide their professional opinions on peers and practitioners within their jurisdiction or practice area.

Each annual research process culminates in the publication of law firm rankings, individual lawyer ratings and firm editorial content.

There is no cost to participate in the research or to be ranked.
