Being awarded a top-ranking by Chambers is based upon a strong and positive impression of our capabilities with respect to flexible legal staffing. In particular positive feedback from clients resulted in Peerpoint maintaining its Band One ranking. Chambers research for the guide included interviewing and meeting with leading alternative service providers, their clients, corporate GCs, and other large purchasers of alternative legal services as well as third-party market commentators.
This year and in previous years, client feedback has been central to the outcome of our ranking. With client comments such as:
‘I have been impressed by the quality of candidates they have offered, their responsiveness and their engagement with us as a client’
‘I think they were very good at listening to our needs and finding people who were suited to our role.’
Our international presence, with Peerpoint offices in London, Sydney, Perth, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and New York, also meant we were able to demonstrate a truly global reach. This in turn gives us the ability to place consultants all over the world. We continue to place consultants in over 10 jurisdictions.
Chambers also highlighted our leading client base that covers a broad range of areas including financial services, investment funds, corporates, and high-growth businesses. We continue to support fintechs in scaling up in London and Asia and are currently expanding our wider portfolio of technology clients. We are also growing our energy and infrastructure client base having been engaged on some ground-breaking projects.
We are one of the most established flexible resourcing businesses in the market and with that comes a deep understanding of the objectives of both clients and consultants. This ensures we have the ability to make valuable and productive matches. Being able to address these ‘individual needs’ was highlighted as something that we invest time and expertise in.
For the first time this year, we have also been ranked Band Two in the overall Asia Pacific ALSP guide. This is a huge achievement as our inclusion is based solely on the fact that we have received particularly positive feedback both in the market and from our clients in the region. One participant commented, ‘Peerpoint is well respected for flexible legal resourcing.’
