European 100

The seventh annual financial ranking of Continental Europe’s 100 largest independent law firms

The 2016 edition of the European 100 will analyse headcount for the largest international firms in the region.

For the first time the report includes 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.
