The 2015 edition of Legal 500’s Europe, Middle East, and Asia guide is now live on the Legal 500 website.
Edited by Mike Nash, the directory is now in its 25th anniversary edition.
The hard copy is published in a traditional black this year after having experimented with different color designs in previous years.

Mike summarized some of the features of the new edition:
This edition has expanded to include coverage of additional markets, namely: Albania, Angola, Armenia, Ivory Coast, Kosovo, Monaco, Montenegro, Mozambique and Tanzania.
We also now have three new ‘regional summary’ chapters, assessing regional capability for Africa, Central & Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
That’s a total of 80 countries covered and over 3,300 different law firms ranked.
Furthermore, we’ve upsized the chapters for a number of African markets, most notably South Africa.
We’re working on plans to fit in more coverage and content next time round.”
Legal marketers looking ahead to the next edition: the schedule and guidelines for the 2015-16 round of research will be published in early May 2015
The submission deadline – following a pattern established in recent years – is likely to be August 2015.
Firm interviews are generally conducted from August to October, although this varies from country to country, depending on the schedule of individual researchers.
