ALMís The National Law Journal today published the 2013 NLJ 350, a list of the nationís 350 largest law firms, reporting that headcount marginally increased last year among the top law firms in the U.S. The NLJ 350 collectively employed 141,056 lawyers in 2012, up 1.1 percent from 139,551 in 2011.

The NLJ 350 appears in the June 10th issue of the newspaper and is also available online now at nlj.com. The NLJ 350 Regional Report, a breakdown of attorney headcounts in top U.S. and international markets, will publish on June 17th. The National Law Journal will publish additional stories about its NLJ 350 results during the next two weeks at nlj.com.

"The 1.1 percent uptick in the number of lawyers working in the nation's largest 350 law firms was slower than the 1.7 percent employment growth from a year ago and is one of the smallest increases we've seen in nearly two decades," said David L. Brown, editor in chief of The National Law Journal. "Moreover, 140 of the firms in the NLJ 350 or 40 percent of them actually decreased in size last year. It's clear that the U.S. legal services market has not yet fully recovered from the recession years of 2008-2010."

Brown noted that the number of partners at NLJ 350 law firms expanded by 1.5 percent in 2012, while associate numbers edged up by just 1 percent.

The Top 10 law firms on the 2013 NLJ 350 included the same 10 firms that appeared on last yearís rankings, with just the top two firms switching places this year:
1. DLA Piper (4,036 lawyers)
2. Baker & McKenzie (4,004)
3. Jones Day (2,363)
4. Hogan Lovells (2,280)
5. Latham & Watkins (2,033)
6. White & Case (1,900)
7. Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (1,735)
8. K&L Gates (1,720)
9. Greenberg Traurig (1,699)
10. Sidley Austin (1,636)

The big movers on this yearís list were Ice Miller (headcount increased 37 percent to 301 lawyers), Butler, Snow, O'Mara, Stevens and Cannada (35 percent; 240 lawyers), and Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy (32 percent; 404 lawyers).

About The NLJ 350
The NLJ 350 rankings are based on the average number of full-time equivalent attorneys for the period Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2012. Lawyer counts do not include contract or temporary attorneys. A firm must have more lawyers based in the United States than in any other single country to be included on the list.
