This important annual research charts the impact of the top 500 legal firms in the UK and is widely regarded as one of the most important publications of its type.  The Birmingham Post has once again teamed up with the Legal 500 publishers to review the West Midlands chapter and discover which firms have excelled in the various sectors of legal work.
