I refer to the IFLR1000 whenever I need outside counsel for a region where I do not have any experience, or if I am unhappy with a counsel and want to change.

I refer to the IFLR1000 especially with respect to jurisdictions I have no knowledge about. The main reasons: to find a good firm or confirm standing of a firm recommended by someone else.
I usually use the IFLR1000 in connection with a need to engage a local counsel on an M&A deal.
