How will the Private Client Global Elite be judged?

Methodology
To be listed within the Global Elite Directory, we require you to make an application.

The application details questions about your firm, practice area and most importantly, your own recommendations within the community. ALM’s Intelligence team works tirelessly with the Global Elite team, who have in-depth knowledge of the marketplace to list those in the directory based upon:

  • The amount of recommendations you receive from the global community within the survey results
  • Your international network, including the breadth of jurisdictions qualified in and those jurisdictions in which you participate in cross-border work
  • The depth and breadth of your experience as showcased in the submission, your ability, your effectiveness and your client-service

Once the shortlist is compiled, the Intelligence team then interview potential newcomers. The list is only finalised once it has been verified by ALM’s global editorial teams.
The judging process will be managed out of the ALM London office with the following editorial support:

  • The Americas: The American Lawyer editorial team
  • Europe, Middle East and Africa: Legal Week editorial, Legal Week Intelligence and Legal Week Events team
  • Asia-Pacific & Australasia: China Law & Practice and The Asian Lawyer editorial teams
