Since we launched the 2020 research period in March, many firm contacts have expressed concerns over their ability to meet the submission deadline due to the impact of COVID-19. In an effort to accommodate all firms experiencing constraints during this time, we have officially extended the submission deadline to June 22, 2020.

Our aim is to remain flexible and understanding as COVID-19 poses an unprecedented challenge for the international legal market. We are optimistic that we will publish all rankings and results during our usual time in the Fall, but we will continue to monitor the status of the pandemic in the event that any other official changes to the research period are warranted.

We encourage an open line of communication with firms that may have any further questions or concerns as we navigate the research period. Please direct any inquiries to

We hope all remain safe and well.
