Clients See a Few Firms as Long-Term Leaders

Clients keep a distant eye on law firm mergers—and have bias for firms who will emerge the winners—especially for big, and potentially long, litigation or regulatory work. Every client knows a merged firm can become conflicted—and this means work for the client. Top legal decision makers name 28 fewer law firms to the list than last year as survivors—firms who will emerge as the leaders over the long term. Note how the Best of the Best also match the firms law firm leaders believe will emerge as long-term leaders.
