The firms are ranked according to the number of lawyers employed in Texas. Lawyer counts are average full-time equivalent (FTE) lawyers for the calendar year 2011. Some firms do not differentiate between equity and non-equity partners, while some firms do differentiate but decline to share that information. For those firms that did report the number of equity and non-equity partners, the equity partners are indicated in parentheses. The Texas lawyer numbers read as follows: total lawyers; total partners or shareholders (number of equity partners or shareholders); associates; and other lawyers. Firms based outside Texas listed the managing partner for their primary Texas location.
