We refer to the IFLR1000 because of the breadth of jurisdictions it covers, the succinct clear layout and leading lawyer recommendations.
We use the guide in particular where we are taking security in unknown or little-known jurisdictions.

I find the IFLR1000 an up-to-date and credible source for selecting and sourcing new legal firms in a new business area or country, and to compare legal firms capabilities in different practices.
I find the tiered rankings particularly useful when benchmarking and comparing between existing legal firms, plus looking at unfamiliar legal practices or locations.
