Norton Rose Fulbright recognized in 2016 Legal 500 US guide

June 17, 2016

The 2016 Legal 500 US guide ranks Norton Rose Fulbright as a leading legal practice in 25 national practice areas, including a top-tier firm ranking in the US for our work in Dispute resolution - Product liability, mass tort and class action: toxic tort - defense.

For the first time, we have been ranked in the US for our work in Dispute resolution - International litigation; Industry focus - Energy: regulatory; and Media, technology and telecoms - Technology: data protection and privacy. Also, Legal 500 also ranked five of our US lawyers as leading national lawyers and recommended another 82 lawyers for their work in a host of practice areas.

The US edition of The Legal 500 is now in its 10th year, each guide highlighting law firms with a national presence. Emphasis is placed on practice groups and teams as opposed to individual lawyers to spotlight the legal market based on the guide's "assessment of the overall strength and depth of a practice group."

With the exception of leading lawyers, Legal 500 does not rank individual lawyers and opts instead to highlight lawyers who are recommended in each practice area.

Listed below are the nationwide practice areas in which we are ranked:
