Here’s some good news for your upcoming holiday parties: Demand at large law firms grew more in the third quarter of 2018 than any three-month period since 2011, according to the Thomson Reuters Peer Monitor Index.

So far this year, demand has risen 0.9 percent, which may sound miniscule but represents the strongest performance since 2014. Demand had fallen through three quarters in each of the past two years—down 0.6 percent last year and down 0.3 percent in 2016, Thomson Reuters said.

The report is in line with other surveys this year that have said 2018 is shaping up to be one of the strongest post-recession years for law firm financials. Citi Private Bank said in August that the first half of the year saw the industry grow revenue by 5.5 percent, which was the most since 2007.
