There are literally hundreds of rankings and awards trying to rate lawyers and law firms. Obviously, we cannot respond to all the requests to participate in rankings, and we follow certain principles in defining our participation in such activities. We believe that serious ratings can assist potential clients in navigating the market, while we do not believe in "pay to play" publications.
From the full-firm rankings, we provide information to the established lists from Chambers Global / Chambers Europe and Legal 500. You can follow the links to read more about these rankings for the Norwegian legal market. All these publications perform actual client and lawyer interviews, review case work and have dedicated resources analyzing local markets.
- the "editorial-model", where we expect an independent analysis based on our actual results and references
- integrity and quality, coupled with an established and transparent method based on actual client/lawyer interviews and case reviews
- not participating in "pay to play" rankings or awards, directly or through related advertisements, diplomas, plaques etc
The Wall Street Journal has written about lawyer rankings.
