Strengthen Business Development

IBISWorld offers a resource for attorneys to quickly familiarize themselves with any industry and gain new business by becoming a trusted advisor in areas outside their core specialties. IBISWorld partners with business development staff in legal groups in two ways—tactically (when you are developing pitches) and strategically (when you are deciding which industries to explore).

Expand Relationships

Your clients’ in-house counsel and senior management want to know that their industry is well-understood by outside legal staff. IBISWorld Industry Reports offer unmatched breadth of coverage. Our iExpert Summaries present quick access to key information via five pages of digestible content and charts, including a SWOT analysis and industry-specific questions to ask prospects. These resources help attorneys quickly prepare for meetings and pitches.

Client-Focused Risk Analysis

Before accepting an engagement, your firm can benefit from a quantifiable and comparative understanding of industry dynamics to mitigate enterprise risks. IBISWorld helps here by scoring the non-financial risks of doing business in an industry. You can also use this information to track threats to your firm’s client list and identify opportunities for new business.

Stay One Step Ahead

Industry changes can provide openings for connecting with new prospects. Gain a competitive edge by giving partners industry data that reinforces the information they include in presentations and proposals. Use our data to identify prospects in industries that are rapidly growing or declining, encountering company consolidation or facing changing regulations, globalization, taxation or technology. Our searchable database and consistent report style simplify comparisons across more than 1,300 industries.

Additional Products

In addition to our vast selection of US industry reports, we have a growing international collection, with Global, Australia, Canada, UK and China Industry Reports and research on 300 economic, demographic and consumer variables that affect businesses. We also offer IBISWorld’s Risk Rating Reports, which provide a numerical score that helps you immediately understand the opportunities or threats relevant to an industry. All reports are structured in a similar user-friendly format as our US industry reports.
