LD500
Jane Sullivan Roberts of Macrae

We’re proud to introduce the 6th annual Lawdragon Global 100 Leaders in Strategy & Consulting.

This remarkable group represents the crème de la crème of the legion of advisors who assist firms in recruiting, crisis communications, diversity and inclusion, marketing, management and even historic reconstruction. While they are geographically wide ranging, their largest imprint is in London and New York with healthy contingents in California, Washington, D.C., and increasingly Texas.

Strategic and crisis communicators are major players advising attorneys – as evidenced by the 36 slots they own on this guide. Notable among them is the nearing combination of Finsbury Glover Hering with Sard Verbinnen. The market for lateral attorneys, too, has never been hotter, as reflected by the 33 all-star recruiters recognized from Macrae; Major, Lindsey & Africa; Lippman Jungers Bala; Johnson Downie; and others.

The 100 were selected through our unique process of independent research, submissions and peer consulting. We spend time every day of the year tracking who’s up, who’s down and what’s happening that’s of the moment through the eyes of attorney clients and competitors. We appreciate all the numerous submissions as well as the time many of you invest with us ensuring we get it right.

This guide is 48 percent female and 13 percent inclusive. Members of the Lawdragon Hall of Fame are denoted with an asterisk.
