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.

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.

Another interesting deal saw the firm act for Jiangsu Iron Ore International Trade on the negotiation for the purchase of mining rights in Chile from Geomilenium, in an $18 million transaction.
