This template creates an infobox with the general information relevant to a law firm. It is roughly based on Template:Infobox company but with law firm-related fields added (e.g., Number of Attorneys) and non-relevant fields eliminated (e.g., Products). The infobox is not designed to contain all the information about a law firm, just the quick facts people usually want to look up.

Simply copy the following code and paste it at the top of the law firm entry, then fill in the blanks. The firm_name, num_offices, num_attorneys, and date_founded fields are obligatory. Other entries left blank will be excluded from the displayed infobox. To change the label from "Attorneys" to "Lawyers", use |num_lawyers= instead of |num_attorneys=.

{{Infobox law firm

Suppose we fill in the blanks like this:

{{Infobox law firm
| name                        = Sample Law Firm LLP
| logo                        = Tux.svg
| image_size                  = 100px
| alt                         = Sample Law Firm logo
| headquarters                = [[Pretoria]], [[South Africa]]
| num_offices                 = 7
| offices                     = Hong Kong, London, New York, Paris, Pretoria, Singapore, Sydney
| num_attorneys               = 250+
| num_employees               = 550+
| practice_areas              = General practice, especially [[admiralty law]]
| key_people                  = {{Unbulleted list|Billy Bob Partner (Chairman)|Missy Smith (CEO)}}
| revenue                     = {{increase}} $1.7 billion (1997)
| profit_per_equity_partner   = $1.2 million (1997)
| date_founded                = {{start date|1997|09|20}}
| founder                     =
| company_type                = [[Limited liability partnership]]
| homepage                    = {{URL|example.com}}
| dissolved                   = {{end date|1997|09|21}} (merger with Other Law Firm LLC)

The infobox will display like this on the right. Notice the founder field is not displayed because we left it blank.
