Chambers and Partners has announced that it will delay the start of research for Chambers USA 2021 edition due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The deadline for submissions for the annual guide to top law firms and lawyers covering practice areas on a state and national level is also being extended.
Poston Communications, which has extensive experience preparing successful Chambers submissions for international, national and mid-market law firms in a variety of practice areas, recommends that legal marketers interested in possible inclusion in the Chambers 2021 editions review this list of changes and mark their calendars for preparation of the time-consuming process of a Chambers submission.

Chambers USA 2021: The submissions deadlines typically begin in June, but have been pushed to begin in July, rolling throughout the remainder of the year. For specific dates based on jurisdiction and practice, please visit Chambers’ research schedule.

Chambers Editor-in-Chief Rieta Ghosh explained the impact of the global health crisis in a March 26 email. “We appreciate the complexities being caused by COVID-19 and are working closely with firms and referees during these unprecedented times,” Ghosh said. “We are also sensitive to the issues that many firms and businesses are facing and will continue to be flexible wherever possible.” Chambers’ website has an FAQ with additional information on its research.
The planned publication of upcoming guides remains on schedule. Chamber says research for these guides has been underway for many months, but it will continue to review its publication schedules.
