Compliance with the EU Cookies Directive by London's legal titans: how the top 20 firms comply

The EU Cookie Directive and national implementing legislation require that website operators that store cookies (small program files that store and send data from a user's computer or device to operators of sites that install such cookies on the user's hard drive) disclose information regarding the use and purpose of such cookies, and secure the user's consent to their use. European data protection authorities in France and elsewhere are conducting "cookie sweeps" this week to enforce the directive, so I thought now would be a good time to investigate how the top 20 (measured by revenue) London-based law firms are complying with this directive as implemented in the UK. The results of this investigation are somewhat surprising.
