For anyone whose attention was wandering over the last year or so, there’s not much that’s outwardly different these days about Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, especially now that the firm has returned to marketing itself solely by its Washington, D.C., maiden name, Arnold & Porter.

But there have certainly been changes since Arnold & Porter’s merger with the smaller New York-based Kaye Scholer went live at the beginning of last year, not least when it comes to the combined firms’ finances.
