NLJ 250 shows growth, but only slightly

The NLJ 250, the National Law Journal’s annual ranking of the 250 largest law firms in the United States, shows that large law firms grew last year, but just barely — by about 1.5 percent. First-place finisher Baker & McKenzie, with 3,194 lawyers, lost attorneys from the prior year. In second place was Jones Day, followed by White & Case, which edged into the number three slot held last year by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
