The July 2005 issue of the American Lawyer covering the Am Law 100 will be in mailboxes shortly, but you can get a preview of the top 10 here.
There’s a new member of the $1 billion-plus revenues club, Sidley Austin. It looks like they did it with the fewest lawyers as well. Skadden leads the way in total revenues, besting second-place Baker & McKenzie by over $200 million, and doing it with nearly half as many lawyers.
These are really staggering numbers, when you look at the column showing law firms with revenues into 10 figures. Sort of makes you feel less guilty about being taken to lunch. Next time I’m ordering a double cheeseburger.
Thanks to law.com for letting its Legal Blog Network preview this year’s results.
