A bigger, better UK 200

The Lawyer’s most comprehensive report on the legal market is now available online


It’s that time of year again; The Lawyer UK 200 Annual Report 2012, the report that ranks leading law firms by turnover, is published with this week’s issue.

Used across the market by everyone from partners and general counsel to consultants and business development professionals, the publication is the result of months of research by The Lawyer’s editorial team.

It is the benchmark dataset for anyone with a serious interest in the business of law. We know – we keep seeing it being used in presentations and published in blogs.

So, for the 2012 edition, we have decided to enhance the way we present the information, still publishing a print version, but with a fuller version available to buy online. The print version contains our league table of the UK’s leading firms along with some data concerning turnover and lawyer numbers. There are abridged write-ups on the top 100 firms, features on pricing and management, and survey results from senior partners looking at how law firms are adapting to a rapidly changing legal landscape.

There are also league tables of the country’s top barristers’ chambers and 30 leading international firms with significant operations in the UK.

And if you think that sounds good, we’ve even gone one better. The Lawyer’s UK 200 2012 online provides the most comprehensive coverage of the top 200 firms we have ever produced.

We are publishing full write-ups on the country’s top 200 firms covering last year’s performance and strategy for the future, as well as a complete dataset on headcount and financials.

To give just a flavour, numbers include revenue per fee-earner, profit per fee-earner, revenue per lawyer, earnings per partner, total number of equity partners, total number of female partners and leverage.

There is also a breakdown of leading firms by key practice areas.

This stuff is gold dust, so log on to TheLawyer.com to get your hands on a full copy.
