From the Paper:

"This paper will discuss the organization, functions, and hierarchies found in the large law firms of the United States. Large law firms, or corporate law firms, generally staff fifty or more lawyers at a time. The main offices for large law firms are generally located within the major cities of the United States. In addition, such firms generally maintain branch offices around the world. The origins of the American large law firm can be traced to New York City at the turn of the twentieth century. At that time, Paul D. Cravath of Cravath, Swaine, and Moore, established a new concept in the legal profession. With this new concept, he "set out deliberately to transform his venerable but personalized law firm into an organization whose structure would transcend the life of its individual members"."
