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.
As part of this year's comprehensive International Bar Association coverage, The Lawyer has compiled tables of the top law firms in seven of the world's major jurisdictions.
From information supplied by the firms themselves, we have ranked them in descending order based on the number of fee earners they have.
While the number of fee-earners is not an immediate indication of the amount of money each firm makes, it can provide a reasonable guide to its size and its clout in the legal marketplace.
For firms based in that country, the number of lawyers includes all those worldwide. For overseas firms with an office in a country, the total number of lawyers comprises only those in that jurisdiction.
Over the next few pages you will find comprehensive facts about each practice, including the number of partners, number of other lawyers and location of other overseas offices.
