Revenue ticked upward slightly at Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer in 2020, and profits increased by 8.4%, as the pandemic economy led to surging demand in several hot practices that overcame a slowdown in litigation and regulatory work.

The results are an improvement over 2019, when revenue declined by 1%, revenue per lawyer (RPL) improved by 1.2% and profits per equity partner (PEP) slipped 2.8%, as the firm continued to work through a 2017 merger between Arnold & Porter and Kaye Scholer.
