FULL METHODOLOGY - Florida 100BACK TO SURVEY

Lawyer totals are based on the average number of full-time equivalent, or FTE, attorneys in Florida from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2016. Surveys were sent to more than 900 law firms nationally. For large firms that did not participate in the survey, ALM researchers estimated lawyer counts based on data from ALM affiliate RivalEdge as of Dec. 31, 2016, reduced by 5 percent to estimate average FTE lawyers for the full calendar year. For other Florida-based firms, the Daily Business Review counted attorneys listed on firm websites in June, and those law firms are marked with an asterisk (*). A firm must have more lawyers based in the U.S. than in any other single country to be included on the list. In case of a tie, firms are ranked by partner count, then by equity partner count. Leverage is total lawyers excluding equity partners divided by the number of equity partners.
