Fernando Del Castillo and Alfonso Castro at the top of the Chambers and Partners ranking

Chambers and Partners is a legal classification that uses editorial and research teams to evaluate lawyers and law firms worldwide, covering more than 185 jurisdictions. Many consider this to be the leading directory in the legal profession and one of the most difficult lists to enter.

Currently, the classification guides of lawyers are carried out by geographical area covering more than one hundred practice areas and different subcategories. In addition, the range of practice areas is expanded year after year.

The lists and rankings of law firms have become obligatory references for legal practice. And within these rankings, Chambers and Partners is among the first. Much of the strategy of its positioning is due to the experience, trajectory and values of the firm.
