Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that the Firm has been ranked in the 2017 Global 100, joining as one of five new entrants to The American Lawyer report.
Using Am Law 100 data, the Global 100 annually recognizes the world's largest law firms in the categories of gross revenue, attorney head count, and profits per equity partner. This year, Blank Rome ranked 96th for gross revenue and tied in 97th place for highest profit per equity partner.
