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.
Over 1400 lawyers gathered at The Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on Tuesday night for the biggest night of the year in the legal profession, The Lawyer Awards.
Berwin Leighton Paisner walked away with the prestigious, Law Firm of the Year award but the biggest cheer of the evening went to the winners of the Public Sector Team of the Year Award: the Hutton Inquiry team. It was that inquiry which had "ruined the summer" of the host for the evening, Tony Blair's former right-hand man Alastair Campbell.
In addition to providing a great opportunity to eat, drink, network, party and celebrate the achievements of the winners, the event also raised a record £63,000 for The Lawyer’s two charities, UNICEF and Barnardos.
