Fieldfisher’s half-year global revenue has beat the firm’s target, with an 8 per cent increase from £54.3m to £58.4m for the first six months of the 2015/16 financial year.
Managing partner Michael Chissick told The Lawyer: “The figures are ahead of our target and we’re pleased to increase turnover, especially in areas where the euro conversion rate is less.”
He attributed the results to a number of practice areas that particularly stand out, including the litigation and dispute resolution department.
“The litigation and dispute resolution teams have had a particularly good first half of the year on the back of some large scale arbitrations,” he said. “The real estate team is also performing well, with the public regulatory department working on some large public inquiries such Goddard, Litvinenko and Hillsborough.”
He added that business in the firm’s seven overseas offices was also buoyant and the firm would move into larger offices in Düsseldorf to reflect increased activity.
Last year, Fieldfisher announced a 9 per increase in half-year revenue figures from £49.9m.
