For the first time ever neither Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom nor Baker & McKenzie heads The Am Law 100’s gross revenue rankings. DLA Piper—already the world’s largest firm by head count—is now the top-grossing firm as well. Twenty firms posted gross revenue of $1 billion or more, compared to 17 in 2011.

Seventy-six firms reported gains in gross revenue, compared to 80 a year ago. The biggest increase, 23.4 percent, was posted by McKenna Long & Aldridge. Shook, Hardy & Bacon had the steepest decline, in gross revenue, 7.2 percent.

Gross revenue figures on this chart are rounded to the nearest $500,000. Firms that are tied are listed alphabetically. For more details, see “A Guide to Our Methodology
