So you're asked to find a listing of the 20 largest (by revenue) companies in Baltimore. Sure, you say, that sounds simple enough. So you hop on Google but, surpisingly, this isn't as easy a question as it seemed. In fact, as far as I can tell, there doesn't seem to be a readily available site on the net which provides this info. So, where did I go? The Baltimore Business Journal annually publishes The Book of Lists which gives you listings of the largest companies in Baltimore for various fields (including a listing for the largest law firms). The book includes a list of the "Largest Public Companies In Baltimore." The only tricky part is that some of the largest companies in Baltimore are private. Thankfully, the book provides a separate list of the "Largest Private Companies In Baltimore." To come up with a true listing of the "20 Largest Companies" you'll have to pull info from both lists to compile a third list.
