Acritas' Canadian Law Firm Brand Index 2013


How the Index is compiled

The Canadian Law Firm Brand Index is determined by combining the responses to five open-ended questions to determine which Canadian law firms:

  • First come to mind
  • They most favour
  • Are most considered for top level M&A
  • Are most considered for ‘bet-the-company’ litigation
  • Are most used most for high value work.

In addition, general counsel from international organizations outside Canada with legal needs in Canada told us which firms they were most likely to use in Canada.

The results are an extract from Acritas’ Sharplegal 2012 research. The data is compiled from the views of 245 general counsel based in Canada in organizations with revenues over $50m, and 55 general counsel based outside Canada in multinationals with revenues over $1bn who have legal needs in the Canada.

The complete Sharplegal 2012 database, and a range of regional and industry studies from it, are available upon request. Here’s a brief summary of who we interview.
