As Spencer Fane has continued its strategic growth into new markets, aligning its practice with clients’ expanding business needs, the firm has continued to capture the attention of national legal media that track movement among the largest law firms in the nation.
Most recently, The National Law Journal published its 2020 NLJ 500 listing, which ranked Spencer Fane as No. 157 based on headcount. Similarly, Law360 published its 2020 Law360 400 ranking of largest law firms with Spencer Fane listed at No. 156.
The Law360 ranking shows the firm’s growth rate at 14 percent over the previous year, which compares to a 2.5 percent average among peer firms ranked between 101 and 200 on the listing.
Spencer Fane’s growth is a result of the firm’s strategic effort to meet clients where they are doing business, but made possible, in large part, by its commitment to culture and core values. In fact, this cultural dynamic stood out to Missouri Lawyers Weekly, which recently reported on the firm’s growth and values, noting that “the firm’s top professional trait – humility – seems out-of-place in the hard-charging legal world.”
