Welcome to IFLR1000 Women Leaders

Women Leaders, a new supplement by the IFLR1000, is now available to view online.

The guide recognises 300 female lawyers we consider to be among the best transactional specialists in their markets and practice areas.

You can download the PDF copy of the guide using the link below.

All the lawyers in Women Leaders are IFLR1000 Leading Lawyers. On the IFLR1000 we rank lawyers using similar criteria to how we rank law firms, on the basis of transactional experience and market feedback, and all the individuals who appear in this guide have impressive track records and are consistently recommended by clients and peers.

The proportion of women in the legal profession is increasing at entry level and the hope is women will soon be better represented in senior positions too. With this guide IFLR1000 aims to promote women who, in spite of working in what has traditionally been a male dominated profession, have progressed to the top of the financial and corporate law market.
