Here are preliminary, partial 2008 financial results for The Am Law 100, the highest-grossing firms in the United States. Gross revenue numbers are for legal work only and exclude disbursements. They are rounded to the nearest $500,000. Head counts are full-time equivalents, as of August 31, 2008. To be eligible for The Am Law 100, a firm must maintain a plurality of its lawyers in the U.S.

Results will be updated here on a daily basis. Final rankings and full results for The Am Law 100 will be published in The American Lawyer’s May issue and on AmericanLawyer.com. The Am Law Second Hundred will be published in June.
