The UK 200: Operational Healthcheck report is The Lawyer’s annual assessment of the most efficiently run law firms in the UK. The analysis is based on a number of key indicators and metrics that are collected from firms as part of the UK 200 research process. They include: property costs; borrowings; lock-up.


The exclusive one-year and historical data, coupled with The Lawyer’s analysis, highlights both the pressures firms are under to deliver legal services as efficiently as possible in a period of intense competition, as well as the steps several are taking to help them achieve this goal (not least via the innovative deployment of new technology).

The UK 200: Operational Health Check report forms a key part of the UK 200 series that each year reveals and analyses the financial results of the UK’s largest law firms by revenue. Other reports include the UK 200: The Top 100 and the UK 200: The Independents.
