The 2024 Am Law 100

The Am Law 100 is the definitive ranking of the 100 largest law firms in the United States. Published each spring through the efforts of Compass and The American Lawyer editorial team, this report offers firm-by-firm data on key financial metrics and deep analysis of the cohort's performance and what it means for the rest of the market. Information includes an examination of revenue, profits, per-lawyer metrics, headcount growth and much more. The 2024 Am Law 100 explores the financial, market and management trends that led to many firms rebounding nicely from prior year declines brought on by economic and market conditions, softening demand and other challenges. While not a wholesale return to the historic highs of 2020 and 2021, fiscal 2023 brought collective growth in revenue, revenue per lawyer and profitability metrics. Meanwhile, equity partner ranks stayed the same size or even contracted, as nonequity partners (poised to outnumber their equity counterparts in the coming years) become more numerous. Below you will find our various rankings of The 2024 Am Law 100 along with several pieces of analysis of the market. The past three years of Am Law 100 reports can be found at the bottom of this page.
