GLOBAL PRACTICE GUIDES

Expert Commentary on Legal Issues

Chambers Global Practice Guides provide in-house counsel with expert legal commentary on the main practice areas in key jurisdictions around the world.
The guides focus on the practical legal issues affecting business and enable the reader to compare legislation and procedure across a range of key jurisdictions.

For every guide we select Contributing Editors who are ranked in the relevant Chambers Guides as the best in their field. The individual contributors who write the ‘Law and Practice’ and ‘Trends & Developments’ sections are selected on the same basis.
