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.

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.

Harmos Horton Lusk
Harmos Horton is a corporate focused firm and therefore it is not surprising to see it ranked so high in our table.
Led by partners Andrew Harmos and Greg Horton the team is small but well constructed. Most of the firm's work is for corporates rather than banks and alongside its M&A mandates the firm has a speciality in securities work.
DealsHarmos Horton Husk advised on the much-publicised takeover of Charlie's Group by Asahi Group Holdings in late 2011. The firm advised Charlie's Group, a fruit juice maker listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange and a majority of its shareholders, on its sale to the Japanese company. The transaction, valued at NZ$129 million ($102 million) highlighted Asahi's expansion overseas, particularly into the Australian and New Zealand market and the general trend towards more takeovers in the market.
