The Global 100: Most Revenue 2009
The recession took its toll last year, yet Global 100 firms still managed to eke out an increase of 2 percent in gross revenue. The real story is in revenue per lawyer, though, which is down 3 percent. American and British players continue to dominate: Seventy-five of the world’s top-grossing firms are American, and 14 are British. Rounding out this year’s list are five Australian firms; two firms each from France and Spain; and one firm each from the Netherlands and Canada.
