With an international team of over 40 research analysts, we undertake comprehensive research of lawyer and law firm performance around the world.

Through a robust data collection process, we harness the reach and trust of the legal communities we have served for over 20 years and hold over 1 million proprietary data points, which are analysed to determine a trusted, accurate view of the legal landscape.

Comprehensive Research Processes

Our research analysts use proprietary digital and in-person qualitative techniques to collect data, which is then augmented by public and proprietary quantitative data. With flexible and intuitive customised online surveys, secure storage and access control for confidential data, our optimised survey design process ensures that on an annual basis we receive over 5,000 law firm submissions and 250,000 third-party recommendations.

Thousands of in-person interviews are conducted each year, collating qualitative data to enrich the quantitative data points and provide a rich, detailed portrait of law firm performance throughout the year.

Data Processing and Evaluation

Before being stored in highly structured relational databases, all proprietary data is subject to a rigorous evaluation framework that ensures accuracy and consistency. This is supported by independent monitoring of data quality from data sources on an ongoing basis, and robust and transparent research methodologies throughout. Data pipelines are carefully architected to optimise data structure and eliminate duplication.

LBR recently acquired Docket Navigator, a US-based litigation analytics business, and I think there is a lot of exciting potential for integrations in the near future.
