League tables

Our reputation for excellence is reinforced by our position in the legal sector league tables. We are the leading law firm for the largest UK public companies - we act for more FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies than any other law firm.

The nature of our international approach makes it difficult for the standard league tables to show our true global coverage - we deliver a global service by working closely with our Best Friends and other market leading firms, rather than through a large network of branded offices.

To illustrate this, we have produced combined rankings which give a more representative picture of our European M&A work.
