Law/Patents - Law (general) / law firms
Swedish term or phrase: advokatbyråer and juristfirmor
This is partly a translation question - how to differentiate between advokatbyråer and juristfirmor in English, and partly a legal question: is there a big difference between the two?

They are both law firms, providing legal services. So why differentiate in terminology?
