LB100 2019: Methodology and notes

LB100 law firms

The firms that appear in the Legal Business 100 (LB100) are the top 100 law firms in the UK (usually LLP partnerships but also some alternative business structures – see footnotes), ranked by gross fee income generated over the financial year 2018/19 – usually 1 May 2018 to 30 April 2019. We call these the 2019 results. Where firms have identical fee incomes, the firms are ranked according to highest profit per equity partner (PEP).
