Katten CEO Noah Heller was quoted in a Law360 article on the firm's 4.5 percent revenue jump to $561.5 million. "This year was the result of strength across the board, really led both by our transactional practices and litigation practices as well," Noah said, adding that the year was about "continuing to provide great client service, staying close to our clients ... [and] continuing to get really high-quality engagement." Additionally, the firm saw its revenue per lawyer rise about 6 percent from its 2014 numbers to $900,000, and profits per partner jumped just more than 8 percent to $1.51 million, the firm said, confirming numbers first reported by The American Lawyer. Noah also noted in the article that Katten has seen its litigation revenues driven up in part by its focus on certain niche areas, which include its environmental and workplace safety work—a practice that has grown over the last five to seven years. In addition, the firm has benefited from its financial services litigation practice and anti-fraud practice. "Having those specialty practices has allowed us to produce above our peers when you're referring to litigation broadly," he said. ("Katten Muchin Sees Revenues Jump To $561.5M," March 29, 2016)
