We operate panels in many practice areas and in many countries. We don't always have a practice area specialist who knows firms in the country, so that is where guides like this come in handy.
The IFLR1000 is a useful cross reference to refer to ... to make sure a personal referral aligns with some objective rankings from a survey. I would refer to it in my main area, M&A, when looking for a counsel in a country we are new to.
The country-by-country tiered rankings by practice area are a good approach, to get a rough feel if a firm is viewed as active in a practice area.

Ukrainian firm Gestors is busiest in corporate and contentious work. Managing partner Vitaly Makhinchuk is focussed on litigation and arbitration, but Andriy Tsvyetkov generally takes the lead on the firm's corporate matters. Clients are impressed by the latter, noting he offers timely and astute advice. "The tasks were completed according to the requirements of our company, including bold solutions with a high level of efficiency," says one. "It's a professional team that works harmoniously; is attentive to customers and their wishes, with a flexible system of payment. They are always ready to communicate in order to optimize the settlement of disputes."
In addition to assisting clients with disputes, the firm has been advising on corporate matters. One example of Tsvyetkov's work was his advice to the ACCA (The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) on preparing employment contracts under Ukrainian law.
