Global Practice Guides
Definitive global law guides offering comparative
analysis from top ranked lawyers
Global Practice Guides (GPGs) take Chambers’ nearly 30 years of assessing top lawyers and
law firms a step further. GPGs provide General Counsel with an essential resource for
expert comparative legal commentary.

What are Global Practice Guides (GPGs)?

Chambers and Partners research remains the trusted tool for in-house counsel seeking out expert go-to leaders within particular industries, practice areas or jurisdictions.

GPGs build on this by bringing Chambers top-rated experts together to create practical overviews of the legal landscape across numerous practice areas in over 40 key countries globally.

GPGs are driven by a practical and actionable approach that allows GCs to:

Compare legislation

Analyse and compare legal developments

Quickly acclimatise to law in unfamiliar jurisdictions

Familiarise law firms looking to operate in new jurisdictions.

Exclusive practice area ownership

Once an overall editor for a practice area is chosen, no other law firm will be able to publish content on this sector throughout the Chambers network for a year. Each author will be promoted for their expertise in their jurisdiction.

Trends & Developments

Each guide is updated annually and includes a series of country Q&A overviews of the law and practice as well as a number of country focused ‘Trends & Developments’ articles covering hot topics with a cross-border focus.

Q&A Templates

The Q&A templates are crafted by ‘Contributing Editors’, selected preeminent leaders within their practices who have a global outlook, ensuring templates are universally relevant.

What are the 15 sector areas?

Submissions are sets of factual information provided by law firms and lawyers concerning a specific practice area. When used in conjunction with other sources, this information helps us determine whether a firm or individual should be ranked within our guides. View the Global Practice Guide release schedule.
