The 2018 edition of the Am Law 200 is, in many ways, a study in contrasts. There is a clear and growing gap between the overwhelming success of the Am Law 100, which we wrote about last month, and the disappointing collective returns of the Second Hundred. And within the Second Hundred itself, there are plenty of firms that turned in sterling performances in 2017 even while the group as a whole lost gross revenue, profits per partner and revenue per lawyer.


Dive into the Am Law 200 data and personalize it based on your firm, peers and trends. Learn More

In this year’s package you will find analysis of the numbers from every angle, providing both a statistical and anecdotal understanding of the overall health of the Second Hundred, and the entire Am Law 200. Our report takes a closer look at the legal marketplace in five distinct regions across the country, debunks a myth about consolidation and casts a wary eye toward the future as we wonder whether law firms will be prepared to handle the next inevitable recession. And in our detailed charts you can see how firms compare in a variety of key financial metrics.

The data was compiled over the course of several months by ALM reporters and editors in conjunction with ALM Intelligence and Legal Compass.
