The market does not change as rapidly as these rankings would suggest – market share and sentiment change relatively slowly in any market including the UK legal sector. I would also point out that a company with a turnover of just £25m (the lower limit for this survey) is relatively small fry for one of the City big boys!

We love a client contact partner who starts a baseless rumour about us because he feels we’re not giving him enough work. It makes us feel loved. Reply Link MrCity 10 October 2014 at 11:47 The London rankings seem about right. The survey seems to focus on top-tier M&A and top-tier Litigation – both are areas Freshfields are somewhat pre-eminent in with the rest of the MC closely behind. UK rankings seem odd though – Eversheds and Pinsents in 2nd and 3rd place? Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
