Vault has begun rolling out its rankings of firms by practice areas.
No real surprises in Antitrust. The top four remain the same.
The big mover was Boies Schiler, which plummeted from T-4 to #13. That’s a bit of a headscratcher. If a firm was going to drop, we’d think Howrey would be more likely, but it held on at #3. The firm has been cutting costs (and partners) after a rough 2009 in which PPP dropped precipitously.
Covington was the highest new entry, coming in at #12, but we can’t imagine how they weren’t ranked last year.
The Top 10 after the jump and the full rankings at Vault.
|1||1||Arnold & Porter|
|6||6||Latham & Watkins|
No Cravath, but if the IBM action heats up, we’d expect to see them on it. And if Hogan Lovells does get the European work, as we predict, they should climb higher.
How does that match your expectations?
