We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Donna Cavalini’s review of ALM Research Online on LLRX is not only hugely flattering, but it very practically walks you through the site, showing and describing the key features. In “Analyze This: The Evolution of Legal Products for the Legal Profession,” Cavalini writes that, although there are several good competitive intelligence sources which provide law firm benchmarking data, “ALM Research is unique among these in that it is the primary source for actual law firm financial data for all of the major U.S. and international law firms … and the release of its annual lists and rankings are eagerly awaited by the legal community.” She concludes that ALM Research Online is “a must-have tool for those working in or with the legal industry.”
In her review, Cavalini shows how to access lists and rankings, do searches for law firm information and searches for client information (by name and type of representation). She also mentions our free editorial extras, such as the ALM Research Blog and the NewsLine e-newsletter.“ And if all that weren’t enough,” Cavillini writes, “ALM has gone one step further and partnered with Alacra to develop an outstanding free tool (registration is required, however) for competitive intelligence purposes: an article search/web spider (see the ALM Research Tool Box on the site’s home page) which searches by firm or keyword across both ALM news content.” Cavallini also includes pricing information.
