First published in 1991, this is the leading guide to law firms throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa. Researched by the team, through first-hand interviews with lawyers and clients, the book includes coverage of the legal markets in more than 70 jurisdictions.
This title focuses primarily on the key areas of commercial legal services. Within each country chapter, the reader will find research and rankings of the capabilities of the premier local and international law firms for corporate, finance and dispute resolution work in that jurisdiction. For the majority of legal jurisdictions, details on legal advice in employment, tax, property, transport and more is also provided.
The guide provides information on local regulations which govern the practice of law, details of the size of firms, and commentary on developments within local laws which impact on local and cross-border business. It is an essential tool for identifying providers of quality legal services outside the user's home jurisdiction and is used regularly by clients and lawyers in private practice when selecting a legal adviser outside their country.
