Hogan & Hartson claimed the top spot among Washington’s highest grossing law offices in 2002, beating out perennial rival Arnold & Porter by a scant $4.5 million. Hogan’s 471 D.C.-area lawyers delivered $284.5 million in fee income, while Arnold & Porter reaped $280 million from 425 area lawyers. Hogan’s revenue climbed 18 percent over the prior year, more than any other firm in the Legal Times rankings except Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering and Dickstein Shapiro Morin & Oshinsky. Hogan’s profits were ample but not spectacular when compared with other top-performing firms. On average, equity partners in Hogan’s offices in the District and McLean, Va., each drew about $645,000 last year. Fifteen of the 20 highest grossing firms earned at least $700,000 per equity partner. J. Warren Gorrell Jr., Hogan’s chairman and one of the firm’s corporate rainmakers, says the firm’s strong revenue growth demonstrates “the benefit of our balanced practice strategy.” As in 2001, he notes, the firm’s litigation practice boomed last year. General commercial disputes, securities cases, and intellectual property cases all helped push revenue per lawyer up about 10 percent firmwide. The IBM Corp. was a key litigation client, Gorrell says, and ranked among the top 20 clients of the firm in terms of revenue. Hogan also roped in some substantial, deal-driven regulatory work and handled a fair share of corporate work. The firm counseled the Carnival Corp. on U.S. antitrust issues related to its merger with P&O Princess Cruises. And on the corporate side, the firm advised on public offerings by Heritage Property Investment Trust Inc., a shopping center REIT, and the Regal Entertainment Group, which raised $342 million. The News Corp., one of the firm’s top 20 clients measured by fee income, turned to Hogan for corporate and regulatory counsel “all over the world,” Gorrell says. Hogan expanded its empire in 2002, completing its acquisition of New York’s Squadron Ellenoff Plesent & Sheinfeld in January, and then launching a small office in Beijing in August. The China outpost is Hogan’s 19th office. Gorrell says the firm’s international reach, corporate depth, and breadth of expertise translate into valuable cross-selling opportunities. “Of our top 20 clients last year, all but one worked with lawyers in more than one practice area,” Gorrell says. “Can we do more of that? You bet the ranch.”
