Which branches of the law are covered by GTDT?

GTDT covers the following categories of law: Banking & Finance, Competition & Regulatory, Compliance, Corporate/Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Energy & Natural Resources, Industry Sectors, Infrastructure & Transport, Insurance, Investigations/White Collar, IP & Brand Protection, People, Tax and Trade.

Each category above is broken down into more specialist practice areas. For example, ‘Energy & Natural Resources’ is further broken down into Climate Regulation, Electricity Regulation, Energy Disputes, Environment, Gas Regulation, Mining and Oil Regulation.

How do I compare jurisdictions?

Once you have logged into, you will see all the categories listed under the Local expertise in every practice area headline.


You can then click on the category you want, e.g. ‘Compliance’, followed by the practice area you are interested in, e.g. ‘Anti-Money Laundering’. You can then choose to either ‘VIEW’ or ‘COMPARE’.

VIEW will give you a global overview, followed by a list of jurisdictions. You can download a report for an individual jurisdiction or compare it with other jurisdictions.

COMPARE will allow you to see how two or more jurisdictions are different or similar.

  • First, choose a practice area.
  • Then, choose the jurisdictions you would like to compare.
  • Finally, select the research question(s) you would like to compare in relation to your chosen jurisdictions.


Scroll down and click ‘Get results’. You can download your results using the button at the top of the page. If you wish to compare other questions, please click on edit to run a new comparison.
