BIG FINISH – After a slow start to the year, law firms progressively improved their financial performance, and are expected to grow revenue between 5.5% and 6.5% for all of 2019, Dan Packel reports. The latest report from Citi Private Bank and Hildebrandt Consulting indicates nearly the same rate of growth for 2020, despite some other industry leaders who predict a downturn next year. Still, on the whole, demand lagged behind 2018, growing at 0.9% over the first nine months of the year.
