The American Lawyer released its annual Am Law 100 report this past week, ranking America’s biggest and most profitable law firms.

The obvious question looking back at the 2019 numbers: Are law firms financially prepared to weather economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic?

On this Legal Speak episode, American Lawyer Editor-in-Chief Gina Passarella and Executive Editor Ben Seal share their perspectives, as well as key takeaways and predictions for the Am Law 100. 

Later, reporter David Thomas talks with Altman Weil consultant James Cotterman about how law firms are responding to the economic downturn and what he sees as the industry’s biggest vulnerability.
