Thomson Reuters Is Rating Solicitors in the UK

New solicitor rating service coming to London, offering enhanced visibility to exceptional individuals

Jul 02, 2012

Thomson Reuters has launched a UK version of its well-known lawyer rating service in the United States; Super Lawyers. The prestigious proprietary rating system is designed to pinpoint the top solicitors in the Greater London area, offering these exceptional legal professionals enhanced visibility in an increasingly competitive environment. 

Solicitors representing each of the Law Society practice areas will be named to the list following a rigorous, multiphased process that involves nominations and independent research evaluations, as well as assessments by their professional peers and thorough fact-checking. Because the list is designed to be a resource for both solicitors and consumers searching for legal counsel, it is limited to solicitors who work in private practice or for Legal Aid.

The creation of the final, official list is currently under way, and it will be printed and distributed in the Telegraph magazine in March of 2013. Additionally, a stand-alone publication featuring both the official list and exclusive editorial content, Super Lawyers London, will publish at that time, and will be distributed free of charge to every solicitor in the Greater London area via the Law Society Gazette. Unlike the other lawyer rating services currently available in the Greater London area, Super Lawyers UK will be distributed via both consumer and lawyer-focused channels.

“It’s an exciting development for the London legal community to add a new solicitor rating service from Thomson Reuters,” says Daniel Taylor, partner at Taylor Hampton Solicitors.

“We’re thrilled to be launching Super Lawyers in London,” says Cindy Larson, publisher, Super Lawyers. “This ranking combines our proprietary, time-tested, rigorous selection process with an unparalleled distribution model that will enable exceptional solicitors to shine a spotlight on their practices, while simultaneously providing valuable information to consumers in search of legal counsel.”
