The Triangle’s largest business and litigation firm leaped 13 spots in 2022 to land on the Law360 400 List as the United States’ 296th largest law firm.
“As the legal market adjusted to pressures of a global pandemic and saw demand for complex legal services soar, many law firms spent 2021 locked in a fierce war for talent to meet ever-expanding client needs,” Law360 reported as it presented its annual list of the 400 largest law firms in the country.
The Law360 400 list features the largest U.S.-based law firms and international firms with a U.S. component as measured by domestic attorney headcount. Smith Anderson’s roster of attorneys is approaching 150 as the firm celebrates its 110th anniversary in 2022.
In 2021, Law360 ranked Smith Anderson the country’s 309th largest law firm.
“While many law firms say they're still actively looking to increase their attorney ranks, some are taking stock after an unprecedented year for hiring, turning their focus to developing the right balance between remote and in-person work, keeping their best people productive and happy, and assessing how client needs will change as the economic climate grows increasingly uncertain,” Law360 says.
