These guides provide clients with expert legal commentary on the main practice areas in key jurisdictions around the world. Written with clients in mind - both in-house lawyers and senior management - they enable the business client to identify and compare current legal issues across jurisdictions in a range of business-critical practice areas.
For every guide we select Contributing Editors who are ranked in the relevant Chambers Guides as the best in their field. The Contributing Editor provides a global introduction to each practice area, and structures the guide to identify and explain law and practice in each jurisdiction included, providing a vital resource to general counsel and senior management.
The individual contributors are ranked in the Chambers Guides as the best in their field. For each jurisdiction Chambers selects highly ranked lawyers to provide local expertise into the issues identified by the Contributing Editor.
The ‘Law & Practice’ sections provide easily accessible information on navigating the legal system when conducting business in the jurisdiction. Leading lawyers explain local law and practice at key transactional stages and for crucial aspects of doing business.
The ‘Trends & Developments’ section gives an overview of current trends and developments in local legal markets. Leading lawyers analyse particular trends or provide a broader discussion of key developments in the jurisdiction.
The Global Practice Guides are distributed free of charge to clients in the relevant industry sectors working in every major jurisdiction globally. Readership also includes all major law firms, global financial institutions and accountancy firms.
