The new law firm Rankings and Litigation Star lists for Benchmark Litigation Europe are now live.

The 2020 edition of the Benchmark Litigation Europe and 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.

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

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 rankings and lawyer ratings for the first time in Ireland and Portugal. 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 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.)
