Katten CEO Noah Heller was quoted in an article in The American Lawyer that highlights information from its annual Law Firm Leaders Survey. "This year and the end of last year was the first steadily positive momentum for the legal industry in a long time," said Noah. "We have seen some steady growth in demand, and it is staying that way month after month." At his own firm, he added that 2015 has been "a slightly better year than we anticipated at the beginning." But like other firm leaders, Noah said that he's less confident about 2016. "The one big unknown that would impact a lot of transactional work and insolvency would be the Fed embarking on a series of interest rate increases," he said. "For me, the Fed and interest rates are the big unknowns." ("Survey: Firm Leaders Are Optimistic Going Into 2016," November 30, 2015)
