The Lawyer launches groundbreaking court rankings

Firms and chambers will be able to chart their competitors’ court appearances for the first time with the launch of The Lawyer Litigation Tracker early next year.

Drawing on data from all judgments in English and Singaporean civil courts from 2015 and 2016, The Lawyer Litigation Tracker is unique, building into quarterly rankings.

Catrin Griffiths, editor of The Lawyer, said: “While corporate lawyers have long been able to benchmark their activity through the M&A league tables, such research has not been available for the litigation market – until now.”

The Lawyer will publish a market report on litigation based on this data in early 2017. The data is currently available in searchable form for early-bird subscribers.

Thomas Sturge, head of research at The Lawyer, said: “The Lawyer Litigation Tracker unearths vital data for barristers, chambers directors, litigation partners and business development teams at law firms.

“It will also be invaluable to any in-house lawyer who wants to identify active and successful firms and chambers.”

The research, which comprises some 6,000 cases, provides access to the following metrics:

Griffiths added: “The Lawyer Litigation Tracker will reveal a true picture of court activity that includes the most global firms to boutiques, and of course chambers. It will reshape the way the market perceives contentious work.”

The Lawyer Litigation Tracker is part of The Lawyer’s suite of research, which includes The Global Litigation 50, litigation data from The Lawyer Global 200 and the annual Top 20 Cases.
