Chambers Law Firm Rankings


When clients make decisions about who to hire, they compare reputation and recognition with those of competitors. Professional accolades and rankings enhance credibility, showcase achievements and demonstrate a track record of getting results.

Chambers and Partners remains the most important source of comparative intelligence about law firms and almost always is part of the mix of resources that clients and other legal professionals use to learn more about a firm. The submissions have become increasingly competitive as law firms increase the resources dedicated to making their case for rankings.

Poston Content has prepared successful submissions for international, national and mid-market firms in a variety of practice areas. Professionalism and experience matter, and we provide support and guidance throughout the process.

We work with law firms from the initial interviews with our writer through the collection of deals, matters and referees that underscore the firm’s leadership. After the submission has been drafted, approved and submitted, we use our media training experience to prepare attorneys for Chambers’ follow-up interviews and research. Our coaching provides important background information, message points and guidance on cultural considerations that will present the attorneys in the best light.

While we can’t guarantee a ranking, we can ensure that your firm makes the strongest case possible based on the work you have done in the past year.
