Supercharged demand in some key practices led Clark Hill to a 22% increase in profits in 2020 on a 3% improvement in revenue.

Chief executive officer John Hensien said productivity was strong in 2020, and a number of practices were “standouts” despite the pandemic-induced economic downturn. In particular, he said, banking and financial services was up 19%, government relations up 34%, and cybersecurity and data privacy was up 105% for the year.

“That was a bright spot for us,” Hensien said.

Revenue at Clark Hill hit $308.9 million in 2020, up 3.6% from $298.2 million in 2019. With 2% more lawyers, revenue per lawyer (RPL) came in at $523,000, up 1.6% when compared with $515,000 the prior year.
