If In-house Counsel Were To Ask, "What's in YOUR Wallet?"

Litigation Department of the Year -- The American Lawyer -- 01-02-2002
Do the math. Here's what you'll find: many big name law firms rarely take cases to verdict. Typical is firm "X" with 28 litigation partners reporting 7 cases to verdict in a two year period. That's 1 verdict per litigation partner every 8 years. Or firm "Y" with 96 litigation partners reporting 24 cases to verdict in two years -- also 1 verdict per litigation partner every 8 years. Some big name firms are slightly more active, many much less so.
