Who’s Who Legal, the London-based lawyer directory, has hired Rupert Wilson, a former Chambers & Partners man, as its new editor.
Mr. Wilson (pictured) joined Chambers in 2012 and worked as a researcher and then deputy editor prior to joining Who’s Who Legal this month.
He said to me:
“I am thrilled to have been appointed editor of Who’s Who Legal. I am excited to be joining a highly respected name in the directories market and look forward to helping WWL continue to provide outstanding research into global legal markets.”
Wilson replaces April French, who had been editor of Who’s Who Legal for five years, before joining the barristers’ chambers, 20 Essex St, last month.
Launched in 1996, Who’s Who Legal is a peer review-led lawyer directory that features 17,000 leading private practice lawyers from 100 countries.
Who’s Who Legal is produced by the legal publisher Law Business Research, which is also behind several other well-known legal titles such as Global Competition Review, Global Arbitration Review, and Latin Lawyer.
