These are the Global 100 firms with the largest number of lawyers outside their home countries. RPL and PPP statistics are for each firm's most recent fiscal year. The "CAGR RPL" and "CAGR PPP" numbers represent each firm's compound annual growth rate in revenue per lawyer and profits per partner, respectively, over the past five years. The first number in the "Foreign Presence" column is the number of lawyers the firm has outside its home country; the second is the percentage of lawyers outside the home country. For statistics on additional firms, see americanlawyer.com.

* The Global 100 treats DLA's U.S. and international operations as separate firms. For this calculation, we have combined them on a pro forma basis.
