The latter firm grew its revenue by 1.2 per cent, boosting its total income from $686m to $694m in 2014, while net profit also grew by 1.2 per cent to $322.8m. WilmerHale’s revenue stalled at just under $1.1bn but average profit per equity partner grew by 7 per cent in 2014, from $1.4m to $1.6m.
For a truly bumper increase though you’ll need to turn to the London office of litigation boutique Quinn Emanuel , which has reported a 33 per cent bounceback in UK revenue for 2014 from £19.8m to £26.2m.
This might just be enough to see the firm make a return to The Lawyer’s Top 30 International Firms in London ranking after it disappeared in 2014 following a 28 per cent drop in turnover between 2012 and 2013 .
The deadline for returning forms for this list is this Friday. By next week Quinn’s chances of a return to the big league should be a little clearer.
