Curacao Legal Portal annually composes a ranking of Aruba based law firms based on the number of lawyers employed on Aruba on 31 March 2011.

Remarkable is that two out of the top ten largest law firms decrease in size (their Aruba offices). At the same time, only one firm in the top of the ranking is growing significantly (David Kock & Wix). Most of the firms remain steady in terms of number of lawyers.

At the Joint Court of Justice of Aruba, Curaçao and St. Maarten and Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba approximately 350 lawyers are officially registered. Of these lawyers, about 100 are working at law firms on Aruba (ca. 30%). These 100 lawyers are working at circa 45 law firms.

Note: this list is based on information provided by the law firms concerned (a.o. websites and official information from the Bar Association). Tax lawyers and notarial lawyers are not included.
