The Am Law 100, the Early Numbers: Revenue Flat, Profits Dip at K&L Gates

Posted by Ed Shanahan

K&L Gates saw its gross revenue rise less than 1 percent and its profits per partner fall 4.3 percent in 2011 amid what chairman Peter Kalis described as a year when expenses grew at a faster rate than revenue, according to sibling publication The Legal Intelligencer.

The firm's gross revenue increased 0.6 percent to $1.06 billion last year, while revenue per lawyer grew about 0.7 percent to nearly $603,000. Profits per equity partner, meanwhile, dropped from about $930,000 in 2010 to about $890,000 last year, according to the Intelligencer.

"While a solid performance, it was a sobering reminder of the power of the marketplace," Kalis told the Intelligencer's Gina Passarella.
