Profits per equity partner grew ahead of turnover at international firm Fieldfisher last year, according to unaudited figures released today.

In the year ending 30 April, profits per equity partner rose 8.7% to £550,000, while firm-wide revenues were up 7.5% to £121m. 

Fieldfisher said its dispute resolution practice had a particularly successful year, alongside financial markets, technology outsourcing and privacy and public and regulatory. The firm has more than 400 lawyers at nine locations in Europe, California and Shanghai.

Michael Chissick (pictured), managing partner, said: 'We have big plans for growth and these results put us on a strong footing to achieve them.'
