Herbert Smith Freehills overtakes Slaughters to top new FTSE 100 client rankings
Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has emerged as the UK law firm with the most FTSE 100 client relationships, according to data gathered by The Lawyer’s digital tool Lawyer Market Intelligence (LMI).
It advises 39 of the top 100 listed companies, of which eight are financial, seven from the energy and resources sector and six are manufacturing.
The LMI rankings look at the total number of relationships law firms have with companies, spread across a variety of practice areas ranging from corporate to employment and litigation to IT. It therefore gives the most rounded view available of law firm relationship capital with leading companies.
