Kennedys' highest-ever global revenue of £286m

Global law firm Kennedys has reported its highest-ever revenue of £286m, up 8% from £264m the previous year.

The most significant growth came in North America, where revenue was up 24% to £55m.

UK revenue was up to £153m, up £1.4m from last year. Latin America saw a 20% increase up to £8m, EMEA a 15.5% increase to £27m and Asia-Pacific an 11% increase to £42m.

In particular, the firm has continued to see strong growth in Australia and in France.

Headcount up

In the past year, headcount has increased to 2,400 people, including 18 partner hires. 

Nick Thomas, senior partner, Kennedys said: “I am very pleased that we have built upon last year’s record figures with further growth. The figures reflect our continued growth into a significant global player and are a testament to the way our teams have continued to respond to and exceed client expectations. 

In the last 12 months Kennedys opened three new offices in Perth, Oman and Delaware and doubled its footprint in Madrid.

The London team will also move into the city’s iconic ‘walky-talky’ building.
