Ten lawyers from global law firm Reed Smith earned individual rankings in the inaugural edition of a new Chambers guide for the Greater China region. The first edition of the Chambers and Partners Greater China Region (2022) guide also ranks the firm’s practices in five categories.

Reed Smith practices were ranked in five categories – by region, then practice area – one of which, China Dispute Resolution: Litigation (International Firms), was a new practice area entry. The other four practice areas were migrated from the prior Chambers Asia-Pacific guide. Reed Smith earned a Band 1 ranking for China Corporate/M&A: Highly Regarded (International Firms).

 The five ranked areas are:
