For the first time, Andersen Legal, the legal arm of Big Five firm Andersen, has made it into the top 10 in annual rankings of the Global 100 law firms. The survey, compiled jointly by The American Lawyer and London-based Legal Business, analyzes growth, earnings, and productivity of firm members.
Andersen Legal, which is prevented from enjoying a U.S. presence due to U.S. bar regulations, joined the ranks in ninth position, and tied with law firm Shearman & Sterling with $590 million in revenue.
