Firm of the Year 2013
23 November 2012
Managing Partners across two hemispheres are trembling in their corner offices as the infamous RollOnFriday UK Firm of the Year
and Australian Firm of the Year
surveys are launched for 2013. One firm in each of the UK and Australia will be crowned Firm of the Year while another will be awarded the mystical Golden Turd.
In a year that's been dominated by mergers, out-sourcing and redundancies, it's the survey that says bollocks to partner profits and Swiss verein structures. Instead it focuses on career prospects, pay and other important matters including the quality of law firms' bathrooms and their meeting room biscuits. The results, and searing analysis, will be announced in the new year.

was scooped by Marque Lawyers, with its "4pm Pens Down Rule on Fridays
Losers will receive the infamous RollOnFriday Golden Turd. Last year that was Dickinson Dees,
where partnership prospects were, apparently, "significantly lower than my chances of getting killed by an escaped walrus
And in Australia DLA Piper
came last for the second year running scoring a woeful 31%.
It takes less than a minute to send your vote for UK Firm of the Year
