The world’s largest law firm may get just a little bigger
Dentons, the largest law firm in the world by lawyer headcount, is far larger than the Amsterdam-headquartered Boekel. On last year’s Global 100 published by The American Lawyer, the firm was said to have more than 6,500 lawyers in 50 countries. The business most recently generated US$2.12bn, or about $2.76bn, in revenues, according to the list.
Boekel, on the other hand, lists just 64 lawyers on its site – 39 of them are associates, three are of counsel, two are senior counsel, four are associate partners, and 16 are partners. In addition to its headquarters in the Netherlands, the firm also maintains an office in London.
Last month, Dentons opened its second office in Mexico in Monterrey City. It also opened a new office in Barbados.
Dentons sent Australasian Lawyer the following statement when asked for confirmation of the talks:
Marien Glerum, Boekel's CEO, said he is "not able to confirm or comment" at the moment.
