Legal Services

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Firms in this industry provide the services of lawyers and other legal practitioners to individuals, businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits. Major firms include Baker McKenzie; Kirkland & Ellis; Latham & Watkins; and Skadden Arps (all based in the US). Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, Dentons, DLA Piper, and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer are all based in the UK.


The overall health of the global economy, and the corresponding volume of commercial transactions, heavily influences demand for legal services. Large firms achieve success by working on cross-border cases for multinational clients and constantly expanding their industry practice areas. Small firms rely on serving local clients and developing expertise in a few practice areas.


Civil law practices account for about 50% of industry revenue; business and commercial law account for about 40%. Labor and employment law account for more than 5% and criminal law practices account for about 5%.
