Welcome, to the Market Leaders’ Poll Group 2016 Legal Market Trends Report from the IFLR1000.

The Market Leaders’ Poll Group is our exclusive selection of more than 1,500 of the most experienced and knowledgeable individuals working in and around the legal profession worldwide. This group includes CEOs, CFOs and COOs drawn from every different industry; managing partners and senior partners from some of the world’s top law firms; and, heads of legal and in-house counsel working in fields as diverse as energy, finance and agriculture.

These leading names also come from jurisdictions stretching across the globe. Major financial centres like New York, London and Hong Kong are well-represented, but this is a truly global group. It draws in professionals from more than 120 jurisdictions – including places like Angola, Cambodia, Costa Rica and Myanmar – so can be said to provide a truly global picture of opinion on the legal market.

For more than 25 years the IFLR1000 has been engaging with the leading names in law. Each year we reach out to more than 65,600 users of legal services around the world and conduct hundreds of interviews with the very best legal minds in the business.

Through this unparalleled reach into the market – on both sides of the table – were are able to offer a unique perspective on the desires and expectations of those working in the legal industry today. With the Market Leaders’ Poll Group we can also add hard data to that understanding, and with it a clear vision of the needs of those working in the industry.
