The 2019 edition of Chambers USA recognizes the following IADC members:

Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands 1 through 6, with 1 being the highest. The
qualifications include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial
astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities valued by clients. A Recognized
Practitioner is an individual on the Chambers research radar working towards being included in
the printed version of the guide.
The Chambers Guides have been ranking the best law firms and lawyers for nearly 30 years by
more than 200 full-time researchers. Individual lawyers are ranked on the basis of their legal
knowledge and experience. Law firm departments are ranked on the qualities of their lawyers
and their individual areas of expertise. Researchers interview thousands of lawyers and their
clients around the world, and their intensive research identifies the world’s leading lawyers and
law firms – those who perform best according to the criteria most valued by clients.
