Q1 2017 Court Rankings

This report analyses the 612 cases across fifteen English courts that reached judgment in Q1 2017. It follows The Lawyer’s inaugural 2016 Court Rankings report released in February 2017, which for the first time measured activity by law firms and chambers in English courts.

Of course, three months is a relatively short period in the world of litigation, where individual cases can sometimes last for many months. That said the analysis of the 600+ recorded judgments in this short period does highlight some interesting trends. It also uncovers some new relationships between litigants, firms and chambers and gives an indication of rising activity levels of certain companies. Furthermore, a number of judgments were handed down in Q1 2017 that have important ramifications for how courts interpret laws.
