Global Litigation Top 50 targets investigations

Heads up: the research for this year’s The Lawyer Global Litigation Top 50, which ranks the world’s largest litigation practices by revenue, is just about to get under way.

This annual report into a market dominated by US firms details the moves made by disputes practices – and the leading in-house teams – in one of the most dynamic sections of the global legal market. As we reported in last year’s analysis, since 2008 the global litigation revenue generated by the top 50 disputes practices has grown by 25.5 per cent, from $19.389bn to last year’s $24.35bn. Expect another rise when the full report is published next month.

This year we’re focusing on one of the hottest areas of the market, the growth of cross-border investigations. In particular we’ll be looking at how firms are responding to client need in this fast-growing and demanding area.

And as always this extensive report will include financial data and key metrics on the world’s largest litigation practices unavailable anywhere else. It will detail the firms that generate the most litigation revenue worldwide, those that are the most productive in terms of revenue per lawyer, and those that have been growing most in terms of litigation headcount in the critical disputes markets of London, New York, Washington, Paris, Geneva, Hong Kong and Singapore.

It is indispensable market intelligence. For more information contact matt.byrne@thelawyer.com.
