About Who’s Who

Who’s Who Legal (WWL) is one of the world’s leading directories of legal practitioners and non-lawyer consulting experts.

Our service is designed to reduce the short-term costs incurred in finding a lawyer or expert, but more significantly to minimise the transactional expense and risk of receiving poor counsel. The publications are designed primarily as a reference source for companies seeking to corroborate the reputations of practitioners recommended by another party.

However, because numerous referrals are lateral, we also endeavour to create a referral network between the lawyers listed, for though they will have a thorough knowledge of the ablest practitioners in their own practice area, their familiarity with other fields in interdisciplinary and international transactions may not be as extensive. Find out more here.

 


1 Recommended: Anyone who is included in a WWL guide is recommended by us and can deservedly be considered a leading name in their profession. Fewer than half of those nominated for inclusion in WWL guides are selected for inclusion, with our preliminary nomination list itself only making up a small proportion of all lawyers or experts in any given practice area.
Future Leader: Future Leaders are practitioners who are already doing outstanding work in their practice area or industry, despite their relatively young age, and are likely to be the pre-eminent names of the next generation. They need not be partners, or even counsel – each of our Future Leaders chapters has listings for both partners and non-partners.
