Rankings & Awards
November 10, 2021

For a seventh consecutive year, Ropes & Gray is ranked among the top law firms on the 2021 Global Investigations Review 100, an annual guide to the world’s leading investigations practices. This year the firm again ranked in the top 20.  

GIR recognized Ropes & Gray for excellence in its handling of complex investigations and white collar matters across jurisdictions. The publication also noted that some of the characteristics that make the firm stand out include its demonstrable dedication to innovation and diversity—the firm has an almost 50/50 gender split among the equity partners in its investigations practice and posts similar numbers at the counsel and associate level. Described as a trusted adviser to a wide variety of corporate and individual clients, one corporate client notes “with Ropes, we know we have a partner and that they are thinking through the implications of the advice they provide alongside us.”

Also featured in the firm’s description this year was the R&G Insights Lab, an innovative, full service legal consulting group and the industry’s first-ever analytics and behavioral science offering. The Lab provides a one-stop resource—and a unique point of view—that drives lasting change with a data-driven and human-centered approach to tackling complex legal and business challenges.

This ranking comes on the heels of other important awards and rankings for Ropes & Gray’s investigations practice. The recognition includes consistently high rankings in Chambers Global for “Corporate Investigations/Anti-Corruption”, Chambers USA for “FCPA - Nationwide”, “Corporate Crime & Investigations - Nationwide” and “White-Collar: Corporate Crime & Investigations” in New York, Illinois and Massachusetts.

In the UK, Chambers ranks Ropes & Gray for “Financial Crimes: Corporates”; in Asia for “Corporate Investigations/Anti-Corruption”; and in Latin America for “Corporate Crime & Investigations.”

In 2019, Law360 named Ropes & Gray a “White Collar Group of the Year.” The group is also the recipient of a 2020 Innovation Award from The New York Law Journal for its digital currency enforcement work.
