Changes for 2018

Although there are no new new practice areas being added for 2018, The Legal 500 has expanded its coverage in some areas and separated certain sections out into more focused categories. Chapters with significant changes include:

  • Antitrust
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Finance
  • Industry Focus
  • Labor and Employment

If your firm normally submits in these areas, make sure that you update your submissions to reflect the expanded coverage of the 2018 edition of The Legal 500 US.
