    围观最赚钱律所!国际律所创收揭秘
    * 发表时间 : 2014-08-18 10:58:39 *

     

      律所收入排行榜上总是风水轮流转,近日,著名美国律所贝克·麦坚时(Baker & McKenzie)打败了英国律所DLA Piper坐上了头把交椅。其营业额以及合伙人平均收益在过去一年中飞速增长,让人不禁对这个1949年创立起来的律所充满了好奇,Bakers究竟是如何重焕生机,创造营收巅峰的呢?全球顶级律所的收入又究竟有多高呢?接下来,请跟随小编一探究竟。

      贝克·麦坚时(下文简称Bakers)创收首次超过25亿美元,取代欧华律师事务所(DLA Piper)成为按收入排行的国际第一大律所。

      Bakers在六月三十号财务报告中称,其营业收入有5%的增幅,达到25.4亿美元,合伙人平均收入129万美元,合伙人平均收益(PEP)在过去12个月中有7%的增幅。(PEP是衡量律所财政健康状况的一项重要指标)

      DLA Piper和其他总部在美国的律所一样,以日历年为财政年度,其2013年度营业收入为24.8亿美元,合伙人平均收益(PEP)为133万美元,是当时世界上收入最高的律所。

      于1949年在芝加哥创办的Bakers,现已在全球的76个办事处中有4245位律师,过去的一年中,其银行和金融、以及诉讼和税务业务尤为强劲。

      和其他国际律所一样,Bakers在企业并购中不断获利。金融危机时期企业并购和银行交易咨询业务所带来的丰厚利润曾一度枯竭,这也是律所创收的主要来源。

      过去一个会计年度中,Bakers为中信金属(Citic Metal)提供法律咨询业务,并帮其从瑞士嘉能可国际公司(Glencore)手中以58.5亿美元的对价买下了秘鲁的Las Bambas铜矿项目。

      Bakers还建议德勤(Deloitte)以11亿美元对伦敦地标性建筑 “小黄瓜”大厦进行破产管理。

      Bakers的足迹遍布全球,曾就任于此的律师包括现任国际货币基金组织总裁Christine Lagarde,去年Bakers在缅甸也设立了办事处。

      Bakers主席Eduardo Leite表示,“自65年前成立以来,我们就一直为全球热情服务,这在律所的持续扩张中可见一斑”。

      金融危机期间,Bakers的PEP曾一度跌至99.2万美元,而现在再次远超100万美元大关。其合伙人从去年的719人降至705人。

      世界排名前五的其他律所PEP更高,PEP的数值在由本律所的律师进行监测的同时,其竞争对手也在紧密关注。瑞生国际律师事务所(Latham& Watkins)的PEP达到249万美元,而世达律师事务所(SkaddenArps Slate Meagher &Flom)的合伙人每年可以拿到273万美元的收入。

      英国“魔术圈”律所(英国顶级律所的代称)中的合伙人年收入可以达到112万英镑,约近200万美元,这也将成为美国律所PEP收入的下一个里程碑。
