The 2023 Best Law Firms list is based on recommendations from lawyers working in law firms (peer-to-peer survey) and business clients (e.g. in-house lawyers in corporate legal departments) in 25 different practice areas.
Thousands of legal professionals across Ireland and Northern Ireland have been invited to take part in the survey. The sample was collected through research by Statista on company websites, law firms, publications and job networks such as LinkedIn. Invitations were sent via email with a personalized link that could only be used once. Around 11pc responded to the invitation.
In addition, legal experts were able to participate in the survey via an open link. In these cases, the participants had to provide a personal company e-mail address before their answers were included in the analysis. This option was only available to those who were not among the legal experts already invited.
The survey was conducted online between March 28 and May 20, 2022, in which a total of 1,026 legal professionals took part. Statista collects recommendations for law firms in each area of law. Self-recommendations (recommendations from your own law firm) were not permitted and were therefore not included in the evaluation.
The top 100 law firms in Ireland have been determined by the number of recommendations received and sorted alphabetically above.
