How we serve you

Survey-driven industry reports
For decades, we have analyzed law firms’ financial performance.

Our Annual Review of Law Firm Performance is based on an in-depth survey completed by firms, which managing partners and other firm leaders frequently revisit throughout the year.

The data gathered shows results by firm size and region on a broad range of metrics including drivers of revenue and profitability.

Our Quarterly Flash reports offer timely updates on legal industry financial performance from data collected through short surveys sent to a broad cross section of firms.

In addition, we conduct regular research throughout the year on topics of current and emerging trends in the industry.

Benchmarked approach
Our Annual Survey Peer Review and Flash Peer Review allow decision makers to evaluate the performance of their firm against that of their chosen peer group.

Peer groups can range from truly comparable firms, aspirational peers or as determined by management’s set of parameters.

These peer reviews serve as important reference points for firms in their strategic planning throughout the year.

Events and networking
Every year, we run a series of events ranging from smaller roundtable discussions to large multi-day programs.

Leaders from law firms of various sizes join conversations with our experts about industry trends, share results from our latest research and information on the broader economic and legal market outlook.  

The private and informal nature of these events provides a comfortable setting for meaningful discussions among law firm leaders.

Bankers, Investment Counselors, and investment finance specialists from Citi Private Bank’s Law Firm Group frequently attend to provide holistic updates on global trends.
