The pace ebbs and flows, but every client knows the legal industry is steadily consolidating. Clients want to work with the survivors. Every time top legal decision makers hire a law firm for a matter with a potential to last for years, they think about whether the firm will be merged or changed in some way. Clients don’t want the distraction. BTI research reveals a surge in the number of firms clients see as the long-term survivors. Dentons and Latham & Watkins are newcomers to the firms clients see as the Best of the Best of the Long-Term Survivors, and join the firms repeating as Best of the Best Survivors from last year.
