THE AM LAW 100 2010: Revenue Per Lawyer Falls Again

Posted by Ed Shanahan


The downward trend continued for Am Law 100 firms in 2009 as more than half (56) posted drops in revenue per lawyer (RPL), what we consider the most telling economic indicator. Overall, RPL was down $15,697, to $802,381 last year, a 2 percent fall. This was the second consecutive year in which RPL fell, another sign of the toll of the weak economy.

  RPL


Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz topped this ranking, at $2.53 million RPL. Four firms had double-digit decreases. Debevoise & Plimpton reported the steepest decline, at 19.1 percent, pushing it out of the top ten. Howrey also posted a 19 percent decrease.
