What is the Legal 500? Primarily a reference tool for buyers of legal services, the Legal 500 has developed over the past 25 years into the largest and most in depth survey of the UK legal market, with researchers analysing the practices of more than 1,000 law firms across the UK.

Understanding the firms themselves is only one part of the research undertaken by the Legal 500 teams. Ultimately it is client opinion that matters. Firms submit details of client referees to the researchers and these are taken up and form a vital component of a firm’s evaluation.
