The Times Best Law Firms 2023

The Times Best Law Firms 2023 survey recognises the most highly regarded law firms as recommended by legal professionals. In order to do this, we are conducting a survey among legal professionals across the UK until Friday, 17 June, 2022. The survey will take just a few minutes and every recommendation is appreciated. All responses will be in confidence and anonymised. To participate please use the registration button below. Once the registration is complete, you will receive an invitation to your e-mail address within a couple of minutes.


Which are the best law firms in the UK? Share your opinion.

To answer this question The Times is conducting a survey among legal professionals in co-operation with the independent market research company Statista. Statista publishes worldwide established rankings and company listings with high profile media partners, including lists of law firms in various countries around the world.

Who can participate?

Every legal professional with an admission in the UK is eligible to participate. This includes:

  • Solicitors (in law firms or a legal department of a company or public authority)
  • Barristers

What does the questionnaire look like?

The questionnaire consists of two parts.

In the first part you will be able to choose law fields in which you can recommend law firms. After choosing the law fields, you can first recommend law firms and then individual solicitors as well as barristers. Entering the recommendation is aided by an autocomplete function, which will suggest you law firms based on the letters you have already entered. You may also freely nominate any law firm that is not proposed by the autocomplete list typing its name and pressing enter. Self-recommendations will not be considered.

The second part consists of questions about the current state of the legal profession in the UK. While it is optional, we would value your views on these important issues.

How long is the survey accessible for participation?

The survey will be accessible from Monday, 25th of April, 2022 to Friday, 17th of June, 2022.

If you have any questions about the survey or require assistance to fill out the form, please contact Christian Leve at Statista on
