The FTSE 100 contains some the most powerful companies in the world. This is the first-ever study of the FTSE 100’s use of lawyers, both internally and externally. It presents exclusive data and examines the trends around the following:

  • Size of the legal team
  • Gender split within the FTSE GC community
  • Detailed profiles of 20 FTSE companies setting the legal function in the context of the company’s global strategy
  • Deals undertaken by FTSE companies over three years: trends by sector
  • Involvement of FTSE 100 companies in disputes
  • Favoured law firms by the FTSE 100 for disputes
  • Favoured chambers by the FTSE 100
  • Shows the true extent of law firm connections with the FTSE, taking into account all work undertaken rather than headline corporate transactions
  • Firms used on board remuneration issues

In-house lawyers have never been so powerful, but because they work in different companies they have never been able to compare their functions. They will now be able to:

  • Benchmark the size and reach of their legal team
  • Compare the law firms they use by specialism
  • Compare the chambers and barristers they use on disputes
  • See the spread of law firms on deals across the FTSE 100

This is the first market report in the LMI series, showcasing the wealth of data within LMI on client relationships and the bench strength on in-house departments.
