Register for updates and early access to our new rating platform
When hiring legal advisors or preparing RFPs and tender documents, request a Meisterline® rating from each lawyer.
The lawyers obtain their Meisterline® ratings (valid for one year) by registering on our online platform and going through a series of tests.
Now you can analyse these Meisterline® ratings to compare skill-sets between lawyers and between entire legal teams.
"The Meisterline® approach uses cognitive modelling and proprietary algorithms to rate a lawyer’s level of expertise on a 99-point scale.
Science-based and tested on the world's best attorneys, our ratings give you an objective measure of each lawyer’s individual skills and abilities in numerical form.
Our ratings provide data that you can download into a spreadsheet for analysis against your particular cost and performance requirements.
The result? Better lawyer hiring decisions based on objective, quantifiable data - not just gut feel."
Dr Peter Macmillan, Founder & CEO, Meisterline®
The Meisterline® rating system builds on decades of applied research and has been tested on lawyers from over 100 of the world’s leading law firms. It generates ratings that are independent and reliable – and not based on subjective opinions.
Lawyers pay to take our rating assessments, allowing us to give clients access to the system for free. There will be optional paid add-ons to help you with your assessments. However, the basic system is free to use. You simply need to ask outside counsel for their Meisterline® ratings.
Comparing lawyers based on their past work, biographies and marketing claims is time-consuming, subjective and too often inconclusive. Meisterline® ratings offer a simple numerical system for assessing the composition of legal teams, their skill-sets and whether they represent value for money.
Add Meisterline® ratings to project spreadsheets; Map them to billing rates and Alternative Fee Arrangements; Quickly identify under and over-valued legal specialists; Perform return-on-expertise calculations to screen legal teams and for post-project reviews.
Traditional lawyer ranking directories offer subjective, qualitative commentary covering mostly senior practitioners. Meisterline® ratings provide comprehensive quantitative data across all levels of legal expertise from junior lawyers to senior partners.
Meisterline® ratings can be easily understood by anyone, whether they have a legal background or not. Being numerically-based and ideal for spreadsheets, they speak directly to senior management and C-suite decision makers.
