The Lawyer
Hot 100 2020

How we select the Hot 100

The Lawyer Hot 100 recognises the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar. Whatever the year, everyone who is named in the Hot 100 has one thing in common: they are the lawyers of the moment. All those on the current list are shaping the legal profession right now; though many already have a distinguished career behind them, no one is included because of past glories.

As always, the 2020 edition of the list includes a broad spectrum of lawyers: well-known names from the top ranks of the profession; experienced figures who have recently come to prominence after years of hard work; and rising stars who we will all become very familiar with in the decades to come.
