The 2021 edition of the Benchmark Litigation Europe firm rankings and stars lists have been published online. Congratulations to all ranked firms as well as individual lawyers who have been recognised as dispute resolution stars. Editorial analyses of the ranked firms are also being published online on a rolling priority basis and will be updated in October.

Benchmark Litigation was first published in 2008 covering the litigation and disputes markets in United States and Canada and has broadened its coverage to include Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Europe.

In each country we provide law firm rankings and a list of the top litigators who we designate as Stars. In addition we also provide rankings for more specific litigation practice areas including:

• Commercial and transactions
• Competition/antitrust
• Insolvency
• Intellectual property
• International arbitration
• White-collar crime

Key information from the 2021 edition:
• 700 ranked lawyers
• 431 ranked firms
• 35 jurisdictions covered

We also provide detailed editorial analysis of each key law firm's activity including recent important case work and analysis and client feedback on each country's top disputes lawyers.

This year, we introduced tiered firm rankings for the first time in Cyprus, Greece, Finland and Latvia. Our goal is to continue to expand our rankings and lawyer ratings in Europe to accurately cover and depict the disputes work taking place in the market.

We look forward to conducting the next round of research and are eager to showcase more firms, lawyers and rankings across Europe within the disputes market. We appreciate the continued collaboration and communication with our research team.

We will be sending out invitation emails when the next research cycle begins, as well as hosting our research webinar at the time of launch. (Actual date TBD: Please contact Danielle Ngwana-Joseph at to participate in the webinar and/or to be added to our master contact list for related announcements.)
