The guide covers 52 jurisdictions, from Greenland in the West to Russia, Turkey and Eastern Europe in the East.

Areas of Law In the largest jurisdictions, such as the UK, Germany and Spain, we cover many areas of law – about 25 in each. In the smaller jurisdictions we usually cover about six areas of law. In the smallest jurisdictions, such as Andorra and Armenia, we cover only one area of law: General Business Law.

Key areas of law, such as Arbitration, Dispute Resolution, and Corporate, are also covered in our ‘Europe-Wide’ rankings and commentary. This Europe-wide coverage focuses on those law firms that operate across the continent.

Law Firm Networks Chambers ranks leading law firm networks in the region.

Date of Publication Chambers Europe is published annually in April.  The ranking tables and commentary, therefore, are fixed at the date of publication for the following 12 months. However, factual information, such as mergers or lawyer-moves, is kept up-to-date on the website throughout the year.

Chambers Europe 2014 will be published online on the evening of 24 April 2014.
