The American Lawyer says its A-List is meant to spotlight the law firms that are all-around standard bearers for the industry: Since its inception, the A-List has recognized firms based on a combination of factors, both financial and cultural: revenue per lawyer, pro bono commitment, associate satisfaction and racial diversity, with RPL and pro bono given double weight.
The firm also saw a reduction in headcount, resulting in an increase in revenue per lawyer.<br />"There's certainly a lot of competition in the category of firms that looked somewhat like we Bryan Cave looked last year," Chairwoman Terry Pritchard said.<br />But on the heels of its April merger with London-based Berwin Leighton Paisner, the newly rechristened Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner has one foot firmly planted in the United States and the other in Europe.<br />"We look at the market more generally and where it's going," Pritchard said.
Eighty-three percent of firms reported that they have at least some chronically under-performing lawyers.<br />In performance volatility, 45 percent of firms said their revenue per lawyer was up in each of the past three years, but 44 percent said their revenue has gone up and down, and 11 percent said revenue has been flat or down in all three years.<br />"I was struck by the fact that there are a number of firms in the Am Law 200 that are struggling, and that revenue growth in a number of these firms has declined," said Detroit-based Clark Hill CEO John J.
In "Good Business: A Market-Based Argument for Law Firm Diversity," a study among the 200 highest grossing law firms demonstrated that the most diverse law firms reported, on average, the highest profits per partner and revenue per lawyer. Translated into dollars, "a firm ranked in the top quarter in the diversity rankings will generate more than $100,000 of additional profit per partner than a peer firm of the same size in the same city, with the same hours and leverage but a diversity ranking in the bottom quarter of firms." It is, therefore, a logical leap to conclude that the profitability of these diverse law firms is a result of the superior services they provide to their corporate clients.
5.3% Gross revenue gains among Am Law 100 firms, with a 1.9 percent increase in revenue per lawyer
In 2008, for the first time in 17 years, average revenue per lawyer and profits per equity partner declined at the AmLaw 100 firms, according to data published by "The American Lawyer." For the second hundred AmLaw firms, average revenue per lawyer was essentially flat in 2008, while profits per equity partner suffered an average decline of 2.6 percent, compared with a 4.3 percent decline among the AmLaw 100.
Average revenue per lawyer in 292 law firms surveyed was up 4.3% to $419,826 in 2006, according to the recently released 2007 edition of "Survey of Law Firm Economics" published by Altman Weil (Newtown Square, PA).
Also in 2004, The American Lawyer named Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi to its "A-List," which is made up of the nation's top 20 firms based on revenue per lawyer, pro bono work, associate satisfaction, and diversity.
A financial survey by the Lawyer magazine ranks the top 100 European law firms according to a number of indicators including European turnover, European revenue per lawyer, European revenue per partner, number of partners, number of lawyers and the global profits per equity partner.
The Lawyer's `Euro 100 2003' is a financial survey, which ranks the top 100 European law firms according to a number of indicators including European turnover, European revenue per lawyer, European revenue per partner, number of partners, number of lawyers and the global profits per equity partner.
Rising six places from last year, the prestigious list honors the most elite law firms in America that have illustrated excellence in five important categories: diversity, pro bono, revenue per lawyer, associate satisfaction and the percentage of female equity partners.
