Content generation

RSG carries out commissioned research for clients and independent research on topics that include innovation, the development and future of the profession, emerging legal markets, M&A, Risk, boardroom behaviours among others. A particular focus is helping law firms differentiate themselves in a crowded market, either through brand projects or stand-alone thought leadership reports.

The annual FT Innovative Lawyers Report has given RSG unparalleled intelligence on innovation in legal services.
