Last week The Lawyer revealed its ‘Top 200 UK Law Firms’. The results of this report show that the law firms who qualified in the top 200 this year generated a total revenue of £25.68bn, a rise of almost 10 percent on 2016/17’s Top 200. Also noted is that the total number of fee-earners, qualified lawyers, partners and business services staff all rose by around 5 per cent. The report explains some of these changes, and also the placement of 8 new firms on the spectrum, by suggesting that these results highlight the increasing influence of US firms and New Law providers on the UK market.
Also noted in the report is that the Top 100 UK Law Firms billed a record £24.1bn in 2017/18, which is the largest revenue ever achieved by the group and a rise of almost 10 per cent on 2016/17.This report, being the largest and most detailed of its kind is essential for firms to help them illuminate the market trends and highlight the new competition that the UK law firms are now facing in this legal year.
