Providing 'top notch service', clients praise the, 'extremely high quality advice and work product Maples and Calder provides'. Maples and Calder's international offices have also been commended as a 'leading offshore firm in Hong Kong' as well as, 'one of the key law firms in Ireland'.

Their first rankings were published in 1990 and the guide currently researches over 120 jurisdictions worldwide. Law firm rankings are based on three key criteria: transactional evidence, peer feedback and client feedback. In addition, individual recommendations are given to those who have proved themselves to be among the leading figures in their respective markets, as well as having a clear track record of innovative work.
