The summer break is always a good time to reflect on just how far we’ve come. Go back, oh let’s say 20 years. It is the year 1996. Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales are officially divorced, the Nintendo 64 is launched, and the UK contends with Mad Cow Disease, as the EU bans worldwide exports of British beef. 

And what are we all listening to? Yes, that’s right, topping the charts it's the Spice Girls.

Through space and time...


So, whether you were already a law firm firestarter in 1996 or still just a wannabe in the future of law – here’s our rundown of the top-30 UK law firms of the day, lined up against the top-30 songs by sales. Do they compare favourably? Ooh Aah… Just a little bit? (Sorry.)
