Chambers & Partners has announced the launch of Chambers Canada, a new discrete hard copy guidebook to the leading Canadian business lawyers.
Although Chambers has featured Canada in its Chambers Global directory since 2000, the new guide will see Chambers significantly expand its coverage to include new regional sections for Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec and Alberta, as well as new practice areas including agribusiness, investment funds, and sports law.
Chambers will contact law firms in Canada in November 2014 with a formal request for submissions.
Research for the guide begins in January 2015, and it’s published in Fall 2015.
Canada has a competitive legal directory market, with other significant players including the native Lexpert, and Best Lawyers, which has a well-established Canadian list.
Legal 500 launched its Canada guide in October 2013, with its second edition due shortly.
In other news at Chambers, the company celebrated the Chambers UK Bar Awards, held in London on Thursday, October 2 2014.
