But what about what may actually matter most, the number of people who are searching for these Biglaw firms on Google? Those searching could be associates and partners interested in salary information or looking to lateral, existing or potential clients, and even members of the media interested in tracking down a hot law firm story.

And here are the most searched Biglaw firms in the rest of the Am Law 100:
Of course Cravath is No. 1 here! The legal world was waiting on pins and needles to see what its 2022 year-end bonus structure would look like. Would it match Baker McKenzie? Of course it would. And the rest of the Biglaw market quickly fell in line after Cravath gave the bonus scale its seal of approval.
