A sneak peek at the Am Law 100

The American Lawyer magazine and have posted this sneak peek at the Am Law 100, the list of America's 100 top-grossing law firms from 2004.

Let's just say it's been a banner year: Of the top ten firms, five firms posted revenues in excess of $1 billion in 2004. An editor sent me this snippet of the story:

"Sidley Austin Brown & Wood broke the billion-dollar barrier for the first time in 2004, while the others did so previously -- Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in 1999; Baker & McKenzie in 2001; and Latham & Watkins and Jones Day in 2003. Gross revenue figures on this chart are rounded to the nearest $500,000. "

Here's how this chart works:

- Firms that tied in the rankings are listed alphabetically.

- Some firms provided fractional full-time equivalent or full-year equivalent lawyer numbers, which were rounded up to the nearest whole number.

- Firms marked with an asterisk have more than one partnership tier or some partners who are predominantly on fixed-income status

So, what do you think?
