Welcome to

Founded in 1987, Legalease is a leader in the provision of legal market information. As a quality-driven publisher, we offer authoritative, in-depth analysis and commentary across a broad portfolio of publications, spanning directories, magazines, journals, textbooks and online services. We aim to be at the forefront of legal publishing, creating high-quality publications for the elite of the legal profession, and their clients.

  • Directories

    The hugely successful Legal 500 series of guides reviews the strengths and strategies of law firms in over 90 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North and South America, and the Caribbean. These easy-to-navigate and cross-referenced guides provide research and law firm rankings to enable clients to identify the best law firm for the job.

    In addition, our directory division produces a number of other invaluable reference sources, including: the Legal Experts guides to the leading specialist legal advisers in the UK and Europe; the Lex 100 student guide to the top law firm employers; and Tax Directors Handbook.

  • Journals

    The Legalease Law Journal series covers a wide-range of practice areas providing pragmatic, business-focused advice on key legislative and case law changes. The articles are written by lawyers for lawyers, from leading law firms and chambers, while the journal editors have many years of practical experience between them. The Journals are widely regarded as providing valuable reporting, analysis and advice in a cost-effective manner.

    The Practical Lawyer and In-House Lawyer also feature hugely popular and cost-effective CPD programmes where Legal professionals can gain up to 75% of their yearly requirement.

  • Legal Business

    Legal Business is the market-leading glossy monthly magazine for the UK and global legal market. Published 10 times a year, the magazine reaches thousands of readers across the UK and in the key financial centres of Europe, Asia and the US. Legal Business covers the key issues facing commercial law firms with more depth than any other title available in the market. Its continuing pre-eminence is down to its agenda-setting format: it gets the market talking by being controversial, sassy, and authoritative. From management to mergers, strategy and speculation, Legal Business is the magazine senior professionals rely upon for gauging the effectiveness of their firm and their rivals in the legal market and the wider business community.

  • The Good Lawyer Guide

    The Good Lawyer Guide provides free, independent, and unbiased advice on choosing a solicitor.
    All solicitors are listed free of charge - no solicitor can 'buy' their way into our reviews. Law firms can pay to list extended information about the firm and its solicitors. Solicitors at these firms are clearly marked out for you within our listings, so you can view as much information on your potential solicitor as possible.
    Please note that the order in which solicitors are listed is based on star rankings before anything else. All our star rankings are awarded strictly on merit and cannot be influenced by whether or not a firm chooses to provide extra information or pay for advertising.

  • The Lex 100

    Which firm offers the best quality of work? Who is the friendliest? And where will you get to deal with real walking, talking clients?

    These are just some of the questions answered within the pages of The Lex 100, an online comparative guide to the leading law firms, based on the views of those actually doing the job! It is an invaluable reference source for all those considering a career in law.
