Law firm CIOs and other managers who want the proverbial “seat at the table” need to follow law firm economics. For large law firms that means the AmLaw rankings. 

I could not attend the American Lawyer rankings preview webinar today but found an excellent summary by Adam Smith, Esq. at The AmLaw 100 for 2007: “Flash Report”.

The new American Lawyer web site will soon post more information.

Update (1040pm EDT, 29 April 2008): See The 2008 AM LAW 100: Lessons of The Am Law 100 (American Lawyer, 1 May 2008). As of now, the only chart I can find on the web is RPL [Revenue per Lawyer] Ranks 1998-2007. Have some fun: copy and pasted the entire table into a spreadsheet so you can sort and analyze.
