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.
Clients have for some time asked firms to sign statements in support of diversity in the legal profession but the agreement marks the first time US lawyers have agreed en masse to provide clients with specific numerical data on diversity.

Among the client signatories are Bank of New York, the Coca-Cola Company, Merrill Lynch and Prudential Securities.
