Odyssey Charter School has been trying for nearly two years to find—and fund—a new location to expand its K-7 offerings into a K-12 school. And thanks to the efforts of real estate and land-use attorneys at Tarabicos Grosso and public finance and tax lawyers at Ballard Spahr, that goal was met last month.
M&A and private equity work helped Willkie Farr & Gallagher's partner profits rise 14.5 percent to $2.56 million last year. Gross revenue also increased 14.5 percent, to $640 million, while revenue per lawyer jumped 8.5 percent, to $1.155 million. All three totals marked record highs for the firm.
