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?
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?
Factors we take into account for the law firm rankings
