Midway through a strategic five-year plan, White & Case announced Friday that it had promoted 41 lawyers worldwide to partnership—the largest class in the firm’s 117-year history.

The bumper crop of new partners follows a year in which gross revenue at the 2,039-lawyer firm climbed 10.6 percent to a record-high $1.8 billion in 2017, with profits per partner jumping 10.2 percent to $2.26 million.
