The directory has been published annually since 1988.
One development this year is the simultaneous release of shortlisted firms and lawyers for Legal 500’s first UK awards.
The final winners are to be revealed next week.
Interestingly, the Legal 500 has revealed numerous statistics about its latest guide through the company’s official Twitter feed.
