DLA Piper finds figures to fit in

Not to be outdone by the flurry of results announcements coming out of the legal community, DLA Piper, which reports on a calendar-year basis, has come up with unaudited figures for the UK financial year.

According to the firm, revenue on the non-US side of its business during the UK financial year totalled £445m, up from £366.7m during the same period last year. This represents an increase of 24.1 per cent.

Meanwhile, the non-US average profit per equity partner (PEP) figure rose by 18.2 per cent year-on-year, up from £605,000 at the end of April last year to £712,000 this year.

As of calendar year 2005, DLA Piper has reported its figures as a global entity and for 2006 it posted global revenue of $1.8bn (£907.58bn) and global PEP of $1.18m (£595,000).
