INTERVIEW IN OUR BLOG WITH THE LEGAL 500

Gericó Associates had an opportunity to speak with Mike Nash, Chief Editor at The Legal 500, the guide to the world’s leading law firms. In this interview we have addressed several fundamental issues, such as the importance of the international directories rankins, what is the current situtation  in the Spanish legal sector and what are the greatest strengths and the biggest flaws of Spanish law firms.

1. First of all, and for those who might have not have heard about you, could you please explain what Legal 500 is?

The Legal 500 is a global series of books and online content that analyses the capabilities of law firms across the world. Our team of researchers annually conduct an in-depth assessment into law firms’ strengths, across over 100 jurisdictions, to produce rankings and editorial analysis, which are free to view on The Legal 500 website (www.legal500.com). We have been in the market for almost 30 years, first launching in the UK and producing the first edition of The Legal 500 EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) in 1991.

Our coverage highlights the teams which are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel in each legal discipline (practice area). Law firms are invited to submit information as part of the research process and participation is completely free. Our research is based on those submissions provided by law firms, with many interviews with leading private practice lawyers, as well as valuable client feedback from corporate counsel – each year, we contact over 300,000 clients globally for their opinions on the best law firms and lawyers.

The Legal 500 research guides are the flagship products but, we also produce a range of resources for in-house lawyers, including Client Insight reports and roundtables, and recognise and reward outstanding in-house lawyers via the GC Powerlist and The Legal 500 Awards.

INTERVIEW IN OUR BLOG WITH IFLR1000

Gericó Associates had an opportunity to speak with John Crabb, Journalist at IFLR1000, the guide to the world’s leading law firms. In this interview we have addressed several fundamental issues, such as the importance of the international directories rankins, what is the current situtation  in the Spanish legal sector and what are the greatest strengths and the biggest flaws of Spanish law firms. 

1. First of all, and for those who might have not have heard about you, could you please explain what the IFLR1000 is?

Of course, the IFLR1000 is the guide to the world’s leading financial and corporate law firms and lawyers, with our primary function being to publish rankings for firms in financial and corporate law. At this point we cover more than 120 separate jurisdictions worldwide, but naturally this number is constantly increasing as we look to expand and incorporate new markets.
In essence we exist to help those, be it those from financial institutions, corporates or law firms, looking to do international business, perhaps in a country or region outside of their comfort zone, to obtain legal advice from a trustworthy lawyer based at a reputable firm. We do the ground work, so that our users don’t have to.
On top of this we provide daily updates on firm developments and lateral partner moves across the world, as well as regular commentary on market trends and geo-political developments affecting the field.
