Legal Rankings in 2024 for CIS, Georgia, Balkans, and Turkey.

In this article, we will delve into legal rankings open to firms from CIS countries, Georgia, Serbia, and Turkey. Given our increasing engagement with clients from these regions and the growing inquiries about ranking methodologies, we've prepared this note outlining participation details and timelines.

This article is primarily intended for companies in Azerbaijan, Albania, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan.

It's essential to note that competition levels vary across countries, affecting the number of participating firms. Some countries see higher competition with a larger pool of participants, while others have limited participation.
