The Global 100 chart package ranks the world's largest law firms by revenue (Most Revenue), head count (Most Lawyers), profits per partner (Most Profits Per Partner), revenue per lawyer (Most Revenue Per Lawyer), and most percentage of lawyers based outside of a firm’s home country (Most Global). Firms are eligible for placement on the Most Revenue chart, the Most Lawyers chart, or both. A total of 119 firms are included on our global charts. Most firms provide their financials voluntarily. Some refuse to cooperate. All information, whether it is volunteered by the firm or not, is investigated by our reporters. Foreign law firms differ in structure from U.S. law firms, but we have taken steps to level the playing field.
