The latest Law Partnership Survey shows that the number of partners at participating firms has increased by 2.8 per cent in the first half of 2019, and by 3.2 per cent in the last year. Meanwhile, Herbert Smith Freehills and Allens are among the firms that have recorded strong growth in non-partner fee-earners in the last six months. Some lawyers are upbeat about the outlook for the legal services sector, noting that law firms are continuing to gain work in the aftermath of the financial services royal commission.
