The NYLJ 100 ranks the 100 largest private law offices in the state of New York. (Attorney numbers for public law offices, such as those of the Corporation Counsel, Attorney General and U.S. and District Attorneys, are listed in separate charts.) Every private law office in the state is considered, irrespective of where the firm is headquartered or whether it claims a home office. Non-U.S.-based law firms are considered equally with domestic U.S. firms; the sole criterion for inclusion in the NYLJ 100 is the size of a firm’s New York state office. Law offices are ranked by the total number of permanent, full-time-equivalent attorneys (partners plus associates plus “other attorneys” – staff attorneys, of counsel, etc.); where a firm has more than one office in New York state, the largest is the one that is ranked. In the case of a tie between or among firms, they are ranked equally but listed alphabetically. The NYLJ 100 is prepared from two primary sources: data obtained through the 2008 NLJ 250 survey of The National Law Journal, an affiliate of the New York Law Journal Magazine, and the New York Law Journal’s own 2008 NYLJ 100 survey. All data is for the period Oct. 1, 2007 to Sept. 30, 2008 unless noted otherwise. Because attorney numbers are submitted in full-time equivalent terms, in some cases, due to rounding, numbers are slightly higher or lower than the figures submitted by the firms. Additionally, minor discrepancies between the total number of attorneys at a firm and the total number reported in branch offices are due to rounding. A zero indicates that less than one full-time attorney works in that city. If the New York Law Journal Magazine received corrected or updated numbers from any firm surveyed by the National Law Journal, the corrected or updated numbers are used here. Production of the charts in this issue require great amounts of numbers and data reporting and checking, data entry and proofreading. Special thanks in 2008 go to Scott Pegram, the Law Journal’s editorial assistant. - The Editors
