Big Law - Big Six (law firms) - Netflix

The Big Six law firms, was a term informally used in Australia to refer to the commercial law firms which, collectively, were the largest firms operating in Australia in terms of revenue and lawyers employed, and perceived to be the most prestigious before four merged or formed association relationships with firms from other countries (the United Kingdom for three of them, China for one of them), in 2012. Before 2012, the following firms were generally seen as composing the Big Six (listed alphabetically): Allens Arthur Robinson (now Allens, which operates in association with Linklaters LLP) Blake Dawson (now part of Ashurst LLP) Clayton Utz Freehills (now part of Herbert Smith Freehills) Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now part of King & Wood Mallesons) Minter Ellison In 2012, three of these firms merged with overseas firms, and one other began operating in association with an overseas firm. As a consequence, it has proposed that the “Big Six” as a term is no longer applicable to the Australian legal profession, displaced by the concept of 'global elite' law firms or 'international business law firms'.
