Further Evidence of Slight Improvement in 1st Half of 2011

The American Lawyer’s AmLawDaily just wrote about results of a Wells Fargo survey that supports the findings of the Peer Monitor we blogged about a little over a month ago.

While there was a wide divergence of results, on average, net income, revenue, and profits per partner were up slightly at the nation’s largest law firms.

The survey also found that there is more litigation work. 

In discussing the survey results, a Wells Fargo managing director predicted that growth will slow for the second half of 2011, but that it will still end up being a better year than 2010 overall. 

The full survey results, which were collected by Wells Fargo Wealth Management’s Legal Specialty Group, are not available, but you can read the AmLawDaily report about them here.

By the way, for those of you think you may be headed to biglaw or are considering it, you ought to consider subscribing to the AmLawDaily enewsletter.  There’s a free limited access version, which you can sign up for here.
