The 2016 edition of the European 100 will analyse headcount for the largest international firms in the region, expanding the ranking to the top 50 firms from 30 for the last two years.
For the first time the report will include firm profiles of all 100 independent firms, doubling that of previous reports. The profiles examine the financial and headcount metrics for each firm, as well as looking at strategic developments, business mix and key clients. This year the report also introduces an examination of the extent to which European firms turn to the banks to borrow money for working capital or investment.

This year’s Africa Elite is an in-depth look at the energy and power sector across the continent. Using 10 years’ worth of Thomson Reuters deals data it explores the international firms that have been most active in this space. In addition to taking a pan-continental view of the sector the report will also look more in depth at the firms winning the most work in oil-driven Nigeria, coal-fired South Africa and gas-centric Egypt. Many of the leading international firms operating in the region have contributed to the report, which also profiles key general counsel from the region as well as the general counsel of a number of international energy and power companies that are active across Africa.
This is the third year The Lawyer has published the Africa Elite and unlike in previous reports focuses solely on the international firms operating in the region. It has also been broadened out from Sub-Saharan Africa to focus on the entire continent.
The report will be of interest to anyone operating in the energy and power sector as it explores the challenges low oil prices pose but also examines the wealth of diversification opportunities Africa offers.
