How We Measure Law Firm Sustainability

The Leopard Law Firm Index measures law firm sustainability using eight indicators and removes bias towards firm size. 

These factors include:

  • Promotions to partner 
  • Growth/Decline in revenue per lawyer (RPL) over a five-year period 
  • Relative success in lateral recruiting and general retention (partner and associates)
  • Relative success in recruiting and retaining entry-level attorneys 
  • Percentage of women partners
  • Average attorney tenure
  • Growth/Decline in attorney headcount
  • Ethnic diversity within the firm 

What Sets the Leopard Law Firm Index Apart?

Unlike other law firm rankings, the LLFI accurately portrays a firm’s stability using “ungameable” data. Updated twice a week, this index takes into account market shifts, attorney movements, diversity figures, and other scored metrics, not solely relying on financial data.  

Every year, we observe firms facing financial difficulties yet still maintaining high national rankings. We recognize that financials alone do not provide a complete picture of a firm’s health. Therefore, we have compiled data points that offer a more precise evaluation of a firm’s strengths and weaknesses.
