Chambers and Partners has published its Chambers Global 2022 rankings. We are pleased to announce that AKD earned recognition in the Corporate/M&A: Mid-Market, Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property: General - Mostly Trade Mark/Copyright and International & Cross-Border Transactions practice areas.

Additionally, no fewer than four AKD partners are ranked as leading lawyers in their field.

We are very pleased that AKD is acknowledged for its strong work portfolio and domestic and cross-border experience. This positive recognition has resulted in a couple of moves up the rankings: AKD is now in Band 3 for Dispute Resolution (up from Band 4) and Roderick Chalmers Hoynck van Papendrecht is ranked in Band 4 after his earlier Up and Coming ranking.

Congratulations to all involved and a big thank you to our clients and peers for their feedback.
