How does being shortlisted for a Chambers Awards differ from being ranked in the Chambers Guide?
The shortlist of candidates is drawn up by looking at an individual's progress and development throughout the whole research year. We look at the work highlights provided by the practice area submissions, ranking changes, and above all the client feedback.  Unlike the rankings, which focus on individuals in certain practice areas, the awards highlight how well an individual is performing in a jurisdiction or region as a whole.
