Latham & Watkins reports revenues at 2008 levels
Latham & Watkins saw a bump in revenue in 2010, which rose almost six per cent to $1.929 billion - roughly equivalent to its 2008 gross. Revenue per lawyer rose almost seven per cent to $998,964, and profits per partner rose 4.5 per cent to $1,993,348.
"Coming into the year we viewed it as a still quite choppy economy," says firm chairman Robert Dell. "We were pretty comforted to grow demand for our services by $100 million. That was at the higher end of our expectations."
