IFLR is the market-leading financial law publication for lawyers in financial institutions, corporates and private practice.
IFLR was first published in 1982. Today, with journalists based in the US, UK and Asia, IFLR offers everything from practical, actionable insight on the latest deal structures and regulatory developments to interviews with regulators and in-house counsel worldwide.
Our editorial team filters the market for the most interesting deals from the drafters' perspective and explains why they matter. We will typically review 10-15 of these deals per month.
Our in-depth analysis brings readers more than just who is on the deals - we also analyse what is in the deals and track the documentation used. That way IFLR helps readers to understand what the market precedent is, particularly in difficult and evolving emerging markets.
IFLR regularly reveals how the leading thinkers are interpreting the law, by providing readers with relevant and timely opinion from international industry leaders and regulators in both major and emerging markets.
IFLR journalists guide subscribers through industry pressure points, comparing best practice across regions, tracking common negotiation issues and analysing trends in deal documentation for the benefit of in-house counsel and private practice.
