ARK Group and IRN Research announce new joint venture

Well-respected in the field of research and consultation, IRN Research has unprecedented expertise in creating market-leading research for the legal industry. ARK Group is committed to delivering progressive insight and innovation to legal professionals through a series of comprehensive guides focussing on business development, information management, strategy, and the practice of law.

ARK Group and IRN Research are excited to announce a new joint venture which combines the research expertise of IRN and the thought leadership of ARK by launching a new line of research reports. Setting our products apart from our competitors will be the combination of in-depth qualitative and quantitative research alongside expert commentary, providing practical advice and guidance on moving your legal practice forward.

The project launches in late April with our residential conveyancing report. You can take part in the initial research by taking our survey:

Other reports publishing in 2016 include:

  • Wills and probate
  • Litigation funding
  • Family law
  • Personal injury

At the beginning of each year, we will publish an all-encompassing UK Legal Services Market Report, and new reports will be added in 2017.

Fiona Fleming, Head of Legal Publishing at ARK Group, said: “This partnership marks a new direction for ARK, and shows our commitment to offering our customers and clients what they want and need. We are excited to be working with IRN Research, who have a reputation for delivering quality research and insight into the legal market.”

David Mort, Director, IRN Research added “Joining forces with ARK is great news for IRN Research. The combination of IRN Research’s specialist research expertise in the legal sector and ARK’s strengths in legal publishing is a natural fit and the partnership will enable our existing range of market reports to reach a much wider audience. Our current range of reports will continue but we have plans for more titles and each of our reports will benefit immediately from a much stronger primary research element and increased content. We look forward to the partnership going from strength to strength.”


These brand-new, industry-leading reports will be available in both hard copy and electronically, and can be bought individually, or as part of an annual subscription package.
