Despite a small drop year-on-year, the Big Law lateral hiring market was still red hot in 2018, as today’s American Lawyer article notes. With more than 2,000 comings and goings, it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. Raw numbers tell us something about which firms are up or down, but don’t necessarily give the full context.

In this data snapshot, we examine some of the most active firms in the lateral market —whether losing or gaining — and plot that against overall percentage of the firm’s partnership. It helps illustrate the actual impact that lateral activity had on the firm overall. (Hover over or tap one of the data points to see more info about the corresponding firm.)
