RSG Consulting is an international ideas and strategy consultancy, established in 2001 in London. Its experience in analysing the legal profession stretches over two decades. Described by one client as “anthropologists of lawyers”, the RSG Consulting team are independent researchers, writers and consultants about the global legal industry.
Ideas and investigation underpins all the company’s work, and it is known for inventing ground-breaking projects to assess the performance of lawyers – from designing the research methodology for the Chambers & Partners Guides in the mid-nineties to creating the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers programme. It continues as the research partner to the FT on its Innovative Lawyer reports and awards in Europe and most recently in the US.
In addition, RSG pioneered the first independent and professional investigation into the emerging Indian legal market in 2008. It now publishes an annual report into Indian law firms and clients and provides intelligence services, consultancy and recruitment services on every aspect of the market.
RSG works with law firms and in-house legal departments to help them develop their functions and client relationships. It is experienced in journalism, marketing and business development, PR, top-level academic research and book and magazine publishing. A particular strength is creating imaginative outputs for its research reports such as film and interactive microsites. The company holds an un-rivalled bank of knowledge and data on the legal profession, drawn from its experience deep diving into the behaviours and motivations of lawyers.
