Despite having to contend with what Latham & Watkins’ outgoing global chairman Bob Dell described to Legal Business as a still ‘anaemic economy’ last year, early results among the US law firms to disclose their 2013 financials are solid, with many forecasting a return to substantive growth this year.

Dechert was among the first to reveal its financials for 2013, with revenue up by 6.6% to $777.2m from $729m.
