Foley & Lardner is the thirteenth largest law firm in Texas, according to a new Texas Lawyer survey.
Foley also is one of the fastest growing firms in the state due in large part to its successful 2018 combination with Gardere Wynne Sewell, Texas Lawyer noted.
Nearly half of the 100 firms with the most lawyers in Texas are headquartered outside the Lone Star state, providing more evidence that out-of-state firms are growing their market share. In 2019, 12 of the 25 firms with the largest Texas operations were not homegrown firms. That compares to 11 of the 25 firms in 2018, and only eight of the 25 firms in 2017. A total of 45 of the 100 firms on the Texas Top 100 chart are not based in Texas, up from about a third of the firms the prior year.
The survey ranks law firm by full-time lawyers in 2019 , among other data. Foley’s lawyer head count was up 19 percent from the previous year.
