Next Monday sees the publication of The Lawyer’s Global Litigation Top 50, our annual review of the year in international disputes.
For the uninitiated, check out last year’s report. This is the only report that tracks the world’s 50-largest disputes practices by the revenue their litigation and arbitration teams generate. To give you some idea of this market’s scale, this year it was worth $24.357bn.
Money has always been its underlying theme, but this year, as part of a significant overhaul, we’ve taken things a bit further. In-house lawyers take note – this year’s report includes a gargantuan level of detail on the fee structures the world’s top firms are currently offering. Got a spot of cross-border litigation? You might want to check these special offers out.
Similarly if you’re a litigation partner who wants to check out what the opposition is offering then this is the place. And as always there is the simple pleasure of checking out an annual list and seeing who’s in, who’s down, who’s up and who’s down.
And this year, for the first time, you can do it all online in our new all-singing, all-dancing digital benchmarking tool.
