Law Firms in the US
As the economy continues to improve, the Law Firms industry will benefit from higher corporate profit margins and increased corporate activity. Increasing mergers and acquisitions (M&As) as well as strength in initial public offerings (IPOs) will continue to improve revenue for the industry's top firms, which receive the bulk of their revenue from major corporate clients. The overall performance of the economy, an anticipated increase in corporate profit and an influx of new laws and regulations will aid revenue growth in the next five years. Expected increases in consumer disposable income will also aid smaller industry participants by increasing demand for services like estate and trust planning. In addition, improving investor confidence will stimulate more activity in M&A and IPO markets, facilitating higher demand for corporate legal services.
