How does one law firm measure up against another? What factors are the most important to consider when taking stock of law firms — and what measures reveal the firms that are scaling the heights of the legal industry?
Law360 Pulse proudly presents the 2022 Law360 Pulse Leaderboard, a ranking of law firms that are forging a new path to all-around excellence in the legal profession.
Our Law360 Pulse Leaderboard provides a fresh perspective on what that path to excellence entails. The Leaderboard takes a holistic look at top law firms — and examines the balance law firms strike between the work they do, the reputation they build, and the commitments they make to socially responsible business practices.
The result is a list of 100 law firms that are proving their worth to top talent, top clients, and the industry at large.
The Leaderboard is the culmination of this year's Law360 Pulse rankings, which look at law firms from multiple angles and build to a final score. Check out the 2022 Social Impact Leaders here, and the 2022 Prestige Leaders here.
