Freehills has come out on top in 2010's list of Australia's best lawyers, compiled by benchmarking group Best Lawyers International.

The list, which is formulated via an independent survey in which thousands of lawyers confidentially evaluate their peers, includes 120 Freehills lawyers - some of whom were listed in more than one practice area - which is the highest number of lawyers in any one Australian firm.

Freehills' chief executive officer Gavin Bell said the firm was very proud of the results, which reflect the firm's strong client relationships and commitment to attracting and developing some of Australia's best legal talent.

"The range of practice areas in which we have the largest number of lawyers ranked shows the diversity of talented commercial advisers that are the heart of the Freehills team," he said.

"This result also reflects the strength of our relationship with our clients which allows us the opportunity to work on innovative matters and leading transactions."

Blake Dawson was hot on Freehills' tail with 103 lawyers making the cut, followed by Clayton Utz and Mallesons with 74, Minter Ellison with 61 and Allens Arthur Robinson with 59.
