The Lawyer Global Litigation Top 50 report is the only ranking of international law firms by litigation and arbitration revenue and is essential reading for anyone seeking to benchmark their litigation and dispute resolution practices...
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.
Here is a perfect example of what makes a regional firm shine. Birmingham stalwart Wragge & Co has been expanding out of the regions and into the City. Last year it gained a London office through a merger with intellectual property (IP) practice Needham & Grant (The Lawyer, 6 March 2000). But this sort of expansion can only be done if the original base is up to scratch, which means judging a firm on its work, clients and, of course, its profits.
SCH is a key client, and Wragges has been advising it on the bulk of its M&A and corporate work since the mid-1990s.
A range of practice areas were called on for the Compelsource deal, including IT, employment, pensions, tax and property. Nick Smith, head of IT and M&A, led the deal.
