Bingham Sees Increased Profits, Revenue — Credits Downsizing

Bingham McCutchen saw both revenue and profits rise in 2008, the firm reports.

Gross revenue for the Boston-based firm totaled $767 million in 2008, a 3.2% increase over 2007; profits per partner went up 6.4% to $1.42 million.

The firm reports a 5.5% increase in revenue per lawyer, to $950,000; and a 6.7% increase in compensation for all partners, to $960,000.

Firm Chairman Jay Zimmerman points to the firm’s reduced head count, down 2.2% in 2008, as an important factor that contributed to this increase. The reduction allowed lawyers to maintain a high level of work, he said.

The firm also brought on three antitrust partners from Clifford Chance in November.
