The Asia-Pacific guide of Chambers Global describes itself as a publication that ranks lawyers and law firms in 33 jurisdictions across the region in over 30 specialist practice areas. Since 1999, it has been researching the legal profession across the Asia-Pacific, identifying the leading lawyers and law firms through interviews with thousands of lawyers and their clients. The reputation of Chambers Global is based on the independence and objectivity of its research. In addition to the 'country' rankings, certain practice areas, such as arbitration, corporate/M&A and energy & natural resources have 'Asia-wide' listings which include those firms and lawyers with pan-Asian practices.
