Demand for law firms’ services grew at a higher clip in the second quarter of 2018 than in any quarter during the past six years, according to a new report from Thomson Reuters that states firms also achieved notable growth in rates and productivity.

Demand for legal services, measured in hours billed, rose 1.4 percent in the second quarter, Thomson Reuters said.

As has been the case for the past few years, the country’s largest and most profitable firms, the Am Law 100, experienced the greatest growth in demand, ratcheting up 3.2 percent. That compared to a 0.2 percent decline for the Second Hundred (the sixth consecutive quarter of Second Hundred demand declines) and 1.8 percent demand growth for midsized firms.
