Who are the top 10 global law firms by revenue?

Citing a survey done by law.com International, abovethelaw.com has published the following list of the World’s Top 10 law firms by revenue:-

  1. Kirkland & Ellis: $6,042,000,000
  2. Latham & Watkins: $5,448,778,000
  3. DLA Piper: $3,471,437,000
  4. Baker McKenzie: $3,126,729,000
  5. Skadden Arps: $3,022,380,000
  6. Dentons: $2,940,600,000
  7. White & Case: $2,869,800,000
  8. Sidley Austin: $2,795,426,000
  9. Clifford Chance: $2,711,508,000
  10. Ropes & Gray: $2,674,046,000

Two take-aways I have from this list are:

  • There are a lot of zeros in those numbers – have law firms finally joined the #Big4 in the Billionaires Club?
  • Clifford Chance are the only Magic Circle firm in that list – so maybe revenue per partner really isn’t the same as profit per partner…

Enjoy the day!
