An In-Depth Analysis of the Am Law 200 and Global 100 FY 2021 Performance and Strategy

New York, NY – August 2, 2022–  ALM is pleased to announce the launch of its annual Law Firm Performance Overview Reports, providing critical insights and analysis on the world’s largest law firms.

Each year, the ALM Intelligence analyst team generates reports on each of the Am Law 200 firms and the non-Am Law Global 100 firms.

These reports feature data points and analysis including:

  1. The FY 2021 financial performance and strategy of each firm
  2. 10-year historical trends incorporating vital financial metrics
  3. Geographical footprint trends broken down by global region and office
  4. Partner hiring and departure activity
  5. Gender and minority diversity metrics

“These reports contain insight not readily visible to the naked eye, while serving as an important source of competitive intelligence for law firms,” said James Willer, Director of ALM Legal Intelligence. “Furthermore, for General Counsel, the reports, and the corresponding data and tools on Law.com Compass, are often utilized for law firm due diligence and evaluation”.

The reports also examine a firm’s retirement benefits as well as providing a peer comparison to see how a firm benchmarks against firms of a similar standing when it comes to financial performance.

“We all saw the impressive top-line financial results among the Am Law 200 in 2021, but these reports dig deeper by leveraging the full suite of ALM Intelligence data,” said Dan Masopust, Legal Analyst, ALM Intelligence. “These reports not only analyze 2021 strategy and performance at a firm-specific level but also put this performance into greater historical context.“ 

These reports are available to Law.com Compass subscribers. The first set of Law Firm Performance Overviews focused on the Am Law 1 to 25 are now available to download here. On this page, you can also download reports from prior fiscal years.
