For the seventh consecutive year, Law360 selected the 20 law firms whose experience "spans practice areas and continents" and who have "handled some of the biggest cross-border matters of the year."
We are ranked seventh on this year's list, marking the fourth straight year we have been included in the top 10 spots, joining White & Case, Freshfields, DLA Piper, Baker & McKenzie and Allen & Overy.
Rankings are based upon responses to law firm surveys that sought information about global lawyer headcounts, office locations and cross-border and international work handled between April 1, 2016 and April 1, 2017.
"When it comes to having the global expertise to handle complex cross-border matters spanning multiple time zones, some firms stand out from the rest," Law360 says.
Firms were ranked based on five factors: the percentage of the firm's lawyers located outside its home country; the number of offices outside the firm's home country; the number of countries where the firm has at least one office; the practice area breadth of the firm's cross-border and international work; and the size and complexity of the firm's cross-border and international work.
