Baker & McKenzie moves into the number two slot this year, besting Latham & Watkins for the position. Thanks to a nearly 20 percent increase in revenue, Baker joins top-ranked Skadden as one of only two firms to post revenues past the $2 billion mark. Eleven other firms had revenues over $1 billion. Dewey & LeBoeuf, in its first full year of merged operations, is the newest member of that club.

Gross revenue figures on this chart are rounded to the nearest $500,000. Some firms provide fractional full-time-equivalent lawyer numbers, which were rounded to the nearest whole number. Firms marked with an asterisk have more than one partnership tier or some partners who are predominantly on fixed-income status.
