The Lawyer Research Service offers a bespoke research service that helps partners, associates and their business development colleagues to develop strategic client relationships. Our clients use our customised reports service for:

  • Thought leadership – building brand and visibility within a target market
  • Industry intelligence - understanding key issues before making a strategic business decision
  • Marketing intelligence - winning more business.

Our reports have enabled firms to build such a strong following that their clients have asked to be included in the research process. We build proprietary datasets that give you insight which simply cannot be found elsewhere.

The Lawyer’s unparalleled reach allows our clients to gain widespread purchase within the media, both within a legal market and way beyond, from DLA Piper’s acquisition finance reports to Osborne Clarke’s Smart Cities project. Both reports achieved over 20,000 downloads and attracted positive national media coverage. 

The Lawyer Research Service works collaboratively with firms to hone their ideas for maximum impact. We can provide your firm with the information, data and analysis you need to grow your business and our award-winning research methodology can be applied to any industry or theme.
