Law firms based in Midwestern cities outside of Chicago saw, on average, better revenue growth than the firms based in the Windy City as well as the Am Law 200 as a whole.

All 25 Am Law 200 firms that are based or founded in the Midwest saw their revenue grow in 2019. Seven of them—Barnes & Thornburg, Benesch, Ice Miller, Polsinelli, Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, Robins Kaplan and Spencer Fane—posted double-digit gains, far exceeding the average 5% growth the Am Law 200 and the 5.65% growth Chicago-based firms saw last year. Midwestern firms on average saw their revenue grow by 7.76%.
