Research at Chambers is focused on clients — their needs, wants, deepest desires. The researchers speak to thousands of clients every year and access a specific practice area by assessing a firm’s recent work in that area. They do this by speaking to a firm’s clients, other lawyers with whom they work, and reviewing information provided by the firm.
