Acritas' survey of top legal brands has revealed that English law firms including 'magic circle' firms do not get a look-in when it comes to legal brands in the US.

This is very interesting, especially considering the impact that US law firms are having in the UK. They are becoming steadily more well-known and are dominating the UK legal market, with law students scrabbling to secure training contracts at big US firms.

Maybe UK firms need to invest more into their international PR, to show the States that UK law firms are just as good, if not better.
