Global 100: Methodology

FINANCIAL YEAR-ENDS

Financial data shown is for the last financial year – either calendar year 2012 or 2012/13.

Financial years differ – most end in December in the US, and in April in the UK.

Legal Business takes the compilation of the Global 100 very seriously. We make every effort to ensure that the figures we publish are accurate and precise. The overwhelming majority of firms co-operate fully with us in this regard by providing us with the required information. Some firms choose not to co-operate officially with our data collection process and in these circumstances we rely on figures given to us by trusted but anonymous sources.
