The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies list - Would you believe 10% of the firms are law practices!

This really did surprise me. The ST list which is based primarily on in depth research contributed to by employees contains more than 10 legal practices or related companies.

Some big hitters are in there such as Pannones, Mills & Reeve and Freeth Cartwright. However there are quite a few firms notable by their absence. No DLA, Irwins, Beachcrofts, Eversheds, Clifford Chance [cough]

Such omissions will not go down very well at the top table of the top firms let me tell you! I can almost visualise the round robin email to senior partners conducting the inquest.
