US Firms Edging Out Magic Circle Law Firms in Global Market

Summary: UK law firms including those in the Magic Circle seem to be enjoying a better time than before. A PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP survey reported this October that the UK legal services market has bounced back to 2008 levels. Below all that glory, however, remain deep concerns over US law firms slowly but steadily dislodging the hold of the Magic Circle in Asia and Africa. Global operating and financial performance of Magic Circle firms against top-tier US law firms is dismal, and an internal salary war has started within the Magic Circle law firms to retain top performers, who keep defecting to US law firms in unprecedented numbers.
