Welcome to the Not 100, the definitive list of the UK's topish lawyers.

In-house, in private practice and in the Bar, these men and women have made a huge impression on the legal profession, or sponsored these awards. From Managing Partners who have grown their firm to the outer limits whilst pushing huge risks five years down the line, to wildly self-promoting associates who will never be heard from again, if they're Not - they're in the 100. And if they're not Not they're not. In it.

Thanks to posters from  the Board including Shami's Chakra botti, Hey there! I am using WhatsCYP, in the ningwangnong, TDB, Heffalump, Trigger Warning, daddycam, Daydort, Mr Nonsekwita, Yes! we have no bananas, Buzz, The Real Anna, Malonie, Nexis, Lears Fool, rural_lawyer and Handle for compiling the profiles of these illustrious figures.
