To compile the WTR 1000, researchers interviewed hundreds of in-house and private practice lawyers and attorneys based in over 50 countries. They were asked to identify the leading individuals and firms in both contentious and non-contentious work. Firms qualified based on their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed.
