China Elite

Despite China’s economic growth having reached its slowest in 25 years last year, the country’s leading law firms continued their strong pace of revenue growth. The China Elite 2016 report singles out the top 30 firms by annual turnover and provides a year-on-year comparison on their results. This year, it also takes a special look at firms that have increased average revenue per lawyer and revenue per partner, good indicators of a firm’s overall financial health.
