Bracewell & Giuliani Breaks Into The Am Law 100

May 3, 2010

HOUSTON  Amid a challenging and quickly changing industry landscape, Houston-based Bracewell & Giuliani LLP rose into the ranks of the 100 highest-grossing U.S. law firms during 2009. This marks the first appearance for Bracewell on the Am Law 100 list, published by American Lawyer magazine.

The firm posted a 2009 gross revenue of $277.1 million, up 0.6 percent compared to 2008.

Bracewell's results can be attributed to detailed strategic planning and disciplined investment in building a diverse practice mix. Strong countercyclical practices, including white-collar criminal defense, financial restructuring, litigation, and environmental have also buoyed the firm.

“This is an important milestone for us,” said firm Managing Partner Mark C. Evans. “The last year was a challenging one for law firms, including our own. Our final results come due to a well diversified practice, both geographically and by area of law. I am extremely proud of our attorneys and staff who continuously work to provide great service to our clients while maintaining the culture of collaboration we have fostered since the firm’s founding 65 years ago.”
