China Top 30 – 2017

The fourth edition of The Lawyer’s annual report on China’s Top 30 firms by revenue provides exclusive data and an unrivalled level of detail on China’s highest grossing law firms, including Dentons China and KWM China.

Its rich content delves deep into leading Chinese firms’ financial performance, including important indicators such as revenue, revenue growth, revenue per lawyer and revenue per partner. This year, the report features a newly added section that sheds light on the top firms’ profitability, including key metrics like profit margin, net profit and average profit per equity partner. The report also covers these firms’ efforts to achieve bottom line growth in an intensely competitive market.

In addition to examining the Top 30 firms’ financial strength, the report also focuses on integration issues of the large firms, their talent strategy, practice area breakdowns, innovation and the increasing use of technology. Information and analytics are based on an extensive questionnaire and in-depth interviews with managing partners.
