Part of the fabric of modern legal marketing, the directories are an important guide to the leading law firms around the world. With 4.5 million website users in 2015, The Legal 500 is both a valuable resource for clients and a tool for law firms to measure success against their competitors. 

Submission season for The Legal 500 is fast approaching and with that in mind, Hayley Eustace, editor of the Asia Pacific guide, will be giving a presentation on the research process and how to tailor your submissions into a format that gives the best chance of getting your firm ranked or promoted.

During this session, Hayley will give a presentation and answer questions from attendees. The topics to be covered are as follows:

An introduction to The Legal 500 research process

  • Why are the deadlines important?
  • When the research and interviews take place
  • About the research team


  • How to structure submissions
  • What makes a good submission?
  • Common mistakes
  • How to categorise mandates 


  • Who can be a referee?
  • How do we contact referees?
  • Improving response rates 


  • How we conduct interviews with law firms
  • Who gets interviewed?

The rankings

  • Factors we take into account for the law firm rankings
  • Leading individuals
