To be included in the Best Lawyers peer-review process, an attorney must first be nominated.
We only ask that a lawyer not nominate himself or herself.
All lawyers in the previous edition of Best Lawyers are automatically nominated into their listed practice areas for the next peer-review process.
Nominators must choose specific practice areas from our list to ensure that the nominations are properly submitted.
View a list of Practice Areas for each country.
