  • Without meaning this as a slight on any firm in the list (they're all great firms), but isn't this more accurately titled "The Largest 30 Offshore Firms"?

    Applying the same logic to the onshore firms, Baker & McKenzie is the 'top' firm in the world. Again, not a slight on B&M (I trained there many years ago) but not sure that would be a consensus view.

  • @ Anonymous, spot on.

    No doubt all have their own strengths in various areas but I can't see the logic in suggesting one firm 'outranks' another simply by virtue of it having more fee-earners.

  • This is my opinion an inaccurate list, their are firms missing from Malta, Bermuda, Dublin, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Mauritius, and so forth, if I may you might research this a bit more before publishing....

  • As discussed in our 2011 offshore report (http://www.thelawyer.com/spring-loaded/1007039.article) we removed jurisdictions like Luxembourg and Malta from the list as these are EU countries with quite stringent regulatory requirements. This was done after consultation with the lawyers in those jurisdictions and the traditional offshore centres. The top 30 is the result of quite intensive research and to the best of our knowledge is a fairly accurate list of the world's largest offshore law firms. If we are missing firms please tell us.
