Available reports:

Market opportunity assessment: Drawing on questions throughout the Sharplegal survey, we will define the opportunity and current landscape in each required market for both domestic and inbound work from multinationals. This report will assist with market entry evaluation, strategy and performance of current foreign offices. 

International needs: Drawing on relevant questions from Sharplegal, we explore the percentage of multinationals with needs in each key international market. We will consider markets where legal appointments have most recently been made, and for those markets explore the work-types required, firms most used and spend trends. 

Key emerging markets: Drawing on Sharplegal data we will explore the percentage of multinationals with needs in the market, countries where legal advice is most needed, average spend, average partner rate paid and challenges found within the region. This report is available for Africa, South East Asia or Latin America. 

Merger intelligence: Under strict confidentiality agreements, we can support firms considering merger activity by sharing data from Sharplegal, that will identify and evaluate potential merger partners, appraise best fit by favorability, consideration and performance, provide a client view of potential partners, and forecast brand success. 

Most considered firms: Our suite of “most considered firm” reports detail the firms that clients would most consider for a range of work-types including: bet-the-company litigation, top level M&A, regulatory, and multi-jurisdictional litigation.
