Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft has surged into the top ranks of profitability. Under Chairman Robert Link, the firm went through a controversial transformation into perhaps the nation's most aggressively profit-focused law firm.

But the firm also has a reputation for ruthlessness that suits some but turns off others.
