February 19, 2009

Firm Continues to Grow Despite Global Economic Challenges

Houston, TX (Feb. 19, 2009) – Today Bracewell & Giuliani LLP announced 2008 revenues of $275.4 million, up 15 percent over 2007. Profits per partner increased 16.8 percent.

So far, 2009 has also been a strong year for the firm, which has named seven new partners, added 12 new laterals since the beginning of the year and announced that it will not be freezing associate salaries.

"The key to our success this past year has been diversification," said Mark C. Evans, managing partner, Bracewell & Giuliani, LLP. "Our offices in New York City, Hartford, Connecticut and Washington, D.C. are fairly countercyclical. Two years ago we decided to invest resources in building our White Collar Criminal Defense, Financial Restructuring and Environmental groups, all of which are in high demand in today's marketplace."

Strong growth has also come from the firm's Labor and Employment and Litigation groups. With long-standing expertise in collective bargaining, the firm expects their labor practice to continue to grow as it becomes an even more valuable resource for clients in today's political environment.

The firm's new partners are Jessica Adkins (Houston), Renee Dailey (Connecticut), Jennifer Feldsher (New York), Rachel Goldman (New York), Dee Martin (Washington, D.C.), Jim Perschbach (San Antonio), and Craig Warkol (New York).

Recent lateral additions have included Kevin O’Connor, former associate attorney general; Michael Olsen, former deputy assistant secretary for Land and Minerals Management; and David Perlman, former chief counsel to Lehman Brothers.
