Flying High – The Legal Business Global 100

How the Global 100 has gone from turning over $71.6bn to $85bn in five years.

The world’s largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380, costs $403.9m dollars to buy. Mayer Brown, ranked 22nd in the Global 100, could buy one A380 with a year’s total equity partner profits. The equity partnership at Latham & Watkins and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom could probably do a deal to buy three apiece – they almost earn enough cash.
