How to use the law firm profiles section

The profile section contains a list of firms that have taken out commercial profiles in The Legal 500. While the editorial is independent from the commercial profiles, the profiles allow in-house counsel to see an overview of the firm's strengths, locations, key contacts, individual lawyer biographies (all provided by the firm) alongside the firm's current rankings. This provides an easy one-stop-shop for corporate counsel and legal procurement departments to gather information on firms they are looking to instruct.
