This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Tulkinghorn believes you can tell a lot about a law firm by looking at its sports teams, and the Legal Fives tournament held a few weeks ago turned out to be a mine of information.
For example, Hammonds called its football team MC Hammonds Time, which implies its lawyers have a special sense of humour. In all senses of special. Similarly, the White & Case men administered a seven-goal beating to Goldsmith Chambers, while the women conceded 10 goals and scored none against Denton Wilde Sapte. Tulkinghorn can conclude that while the White & Case males are preening at the gym, the women are in the office doing all the work.
Finally, Tulkinghorn notes that Freshfields lost by a last-minute goal in an epic netball match against Clifford Chance. He supposes that pensioning off the old partners did little to improve overall stamina.
