Though the Chambers USA 2023 guide is nearing publication, the 2024 research schedule has just been announced. A strong Chambers submission can take a minimum of six weeks to compile, so early preparation for lawyers and legal marketers is key.
You may be wondering whether the results are worth that time commitment, but remember that many clients and competitive intelligence gathering groups consider Chambers one of the most important and reliable sources for legal rankings due to its rigorous and in-depth processes. For that reason, Chambers recognitions can provide a competitive edge and strengthen a request for proposal, for example.
Chambers USA 2024 Schedule Features
Use the 2024 research schedule as the first planning tool.
The Chambers USA research schedule can be filtered by one or multiple practice area(s) and location(s). If needed, the schedule can also be downloaded into Microsoft Excel.
As in previous editions, the schedule specifies deadlines for each practice area and location. Be careful not to assume deadlines will be the same for an entire state or practice area, as you could miss the window key to your firm’s practice. Also, many sections no longer require referee lists as Chambers will now rely on client feedback from its research at the state level to determine those rankings.
