Top 10 Lists Methodology

Martindale-Hubbell compiles a series of lists of the top 10 law firms on martindale.com across a variety of criteria. These lists are refreshed monthly. Each list includes direct links to the firms' profiles to aid further research.

When one or more firm appears with the same total on a Top 10 list, all firms with that total are displayed alphabetically under the same Top 10 number. Successive firms are listed until the number 10 is displayed.
