The Top 50 +50 survey 2009

All the news, views and analysis on our 2009 Top 50 and +50 survey

The recession and the credit crunch have taken their toll. Of this year’s Top
50, 39 firms, or 78%, have seen their growth rates squashed, while nine of those
have seen their revenues enter negative growth. The economic crisis is punishing
practice. But we extended this year’s survey to 100 firms to produce a second
list, the +50. Here things are equally difficult with almost half the firms
booking growth rates below 5%, with a significant portion of those either flat
or in negative territory.

This special report features all the coverage of this year’s Top 50 and +50
survey. Click on the links below to view the articles.
