Virginia Lawyers Weekly presents its annual survey of “Virginia’s Largest Law Firms.” The survey appears in a magazine inserted in the April 23 edition.
The survey has been compiled every year since 1989 and gives readers a glimpse of the commonwealth’s largest firms.
We identify the largest firms in the state, and the rankings are based on the number of Virginia-licensed attorneys working in an office located in Virginia. If a firm has multiple offices within the state, all those lawyers who have a Virginia ticket count. Any lawyers resident in D.C. or some other city will not count.
All information is provided by the firms themselves early in the year. We contact firms that appeared in the prior year’s survey and solicit submissions.
We run promotional announcements on the VLW Daily Alert and our website throughout the first few months of the year to notify any new firms formed during the prior year or firms that may have added enough lawyers to qualify for the list.
For firms that do not respond to the survey, we consult their websites.
Firms have an opportunity to purchase an enhanced listing that includes a firm logo, practice areas, important contacts, website address and other useful data.
We appreciate the participation of the many firms that provided their data in a timely fashion. If we do not have a firm listing that should make the list, please contact us and we will include it in the online version of the survey.
