Spring might seem far away right now, but The American Lawyer is already working on the reporting for our annual Am Law 100 and 200 reports. After a tumultuous year brought on by the pandemic, The American Lawyer’s data on how law firms fared financially in 2020 will reveal how so much change truly affected the legal industry. The early returns indicate profits and revenue will be on the rise at many firms. As we report on individual firms’ financial results from 2020, we’ll be updating this page to keep you up to date. So bookmark it, check back regularly, and stay tuned for the Am Law 100 report in late April.
