The Florida Daily Business Review 100 is a list of the largest 100 law firms in Florida by attorney count based on surveys sent to more than 180 firms.
Where provided by the law firm, revenue, compensation and PPP are also available for South Florida’s top firms.
The Daily Business Review surveyed firms with a major South Florida presence. Firms that rely primarily on personal injury and product liability litigation were not included. For purposes of uniformity, gross revenue represents legal fees billed and collected in a firm’s fiscal year. It does not include disbursements or soft costs.
National firms are included if they generate substantial revenue in Florida. Dollar figures are from the firms’ latest fiscal year, and most coincide with the calendar year. Profit per equity partner and compensation per partner are averages. The amounts do not reflect sums distributed to partners. Some partners may receive far less, while founding partners and major partners may well exceed the average.
When calculating revenue per lawyer, of counsel lawyers are counted with associates as salaried employees whose compensation is an element of overhead costs. Attorney numbers on financial charts were reported as of last Aug. 31. The chart information is based on voluntary disclosures by the law firms.
