Lawyers are still taking home big salaries despite a dip in revenues

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp REVENUES at the top law firms have declined dramatically since the boom years, but senior lawyers at the UK’s top 100 firms are still taking home record salaries. According to an annual survey for Legal Business magazine, released tomorrow, combined revenue at the UK’s top law firms came in at £14.18bn in 2009-10. That was a drop of four per cent on the previous year, and marked the first dip in annual revenues in almost two decades. A dearth of corporate transactions and a slumping property sector have taken their toll on the industry. Magic circle legal outfit Clifford Chance still has the highest turnover, according to the survey, despite seeing a five per cent fall in income to £1.196bn. Linklaters is just behind Clifford Chance after posting 2010 revenue of £1.183bn, a nine per cent drop.Rivals Freshfield Bruckhaus Deringer and Allen & Overy also reported falling revenue figures for the year. Freshfields posted the biggest drop during the year, after income fell by 11 per cent to £1.141bn, while Allen & Overy reported a four per cent drop to £1.050bn.Although billing levels at the UK’s top firms suffered as a result of the recession, two-thirds of the 100 law firms surveyed by Legal Business posted an increase in profits per equity partner (PEP).Average profits distributed to equity partners – partners who have a stake in the firm – climbed by 12 per cent during the year as a result of cost-cutting, including redundancies and lower discretionary spending, the report says. Last year headcount across the UK’s top 100 law firms shrank by three per cent after 1,329 lawyers were made redundant. Roughly 47,725 lawyers are employed at the top 100 firms. The fall in headcount meant that PEP, which is net income divided amongst equity partners and is usually seen as a barometer of a law firm’s financial health, saw a sharp rise.Slaughter and May’s corporate and M&A heavyweight partner Nigel Boardman earned the highest salary, taking home £2.3m, according to Legal Business, while the magazine reports that Alastair Dickson, founder of law firm Dickson Minto, came in at a close second place after making £2m.

September traffic rises for Ryanair

first_img September traffic rises for Ryanair KCS-content Share Monday 4 October 2010 8:25 pm BUDGET airline Ryanair carried more passengers in September compared with the same period last year.According to the Dublin-based airline led by chief executive Michael O’Leary, it carried 6.84m people last month, marking a sharp 12 per cent increase from September last year when it flew 6.12m people. However, Ryanair said that it has flown 71.6m passengers during the year to 10 September. This number includes the 1.45m passengers who were booked to fly but didn’t during the six-day closure of European airspace as a result of the volcanic eruptions in Iceland.The airline said in July that the Icelandic ash cloud had caused it to scrap almost 10,000 flights at a cost of €50m (£43.2m). The impact caused the airline’s profits to fall by almost 25 per cent during the first quarter of the year causing them to come in at €93.7m (£80m).Meanwhile, Ryanair’s flights were almost at full capacity last month after the airline filled 86 per cent of its planes. The number, known as load factor, rose by one per cent compared to the same period last year when Ryanair filled 85 per cent of its planes. During the last 12 months, on average, Ryanair’s load factor reached 82 per cent. whatsappcenter_img Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

FTSE dampened by commodities and banks

first_img whatsapp alison.lock whatsapp LONDON eased to a close just over the 6,000 mark after stronger Wall Street sentiment failed to shake off concerns over China’s monetary policy tightening.The FTSE 100 ended down 21.81 points, or 0.4 per cent, at 6002.07, having closed 0.4 per cent lower yesterday, pulled lower by commodity stocks and banks.China’s central bank raised banks’ required reserves by another 50 basis points, effective Jan, 20, its seventh increase since early 2010.It prompted anxiety that a cooling of Chinese growth may hurt demand for oil and base metal prices, both of which held below recent highs helping push miners and oil majors like BP lower.“This move weighed on sentiment throughout the trading day with ARM Holdings one of the few bright spots, jumping higher on the back of those record Intel Q4 results,” said Michael Hewson, market analyst at CMC Markets. Chipmaker ARM, which recently announced a tie-up with Microsoft and has been the subject of persistent M&A talk, rose 5.3 per cent to 530.50p. But Mexican precious metals miner Fresnillo fell 4.2 per cent to 1,492.00p, despite posting record annual output figures, as gold fell over two per cent. Anglo American lost 3.2 per cent to close at 3,300.00p while Antofagasta also fell 2.40% per cent into the red to 1,502p.Financial stocks were also weighed down by the news, said Sean Power, equity analyst at City Index.“The banking sector was also weaker today following China’s decision, bucking the recent positive sentiment towards UK banks. Having had a good run this week investors decided to bank some of their well earned profits – excuse the pun,” he said. “Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland and HSBC all traded lower earlier today but have since shown signs of resilience following better than expected numbers from JP Morgan.”Prosthetic limb maker Smith & Nephew quickly gave up its early price gains after it issued a statement denying reports of any talks that could lead to a merger or takeover. The announcement followed a Daily Telegraph report that it was set to enter merger talks with US orthopaedics group Biomet.BAE Systems rose 1.2 per cent to 346.7p after buying financial cyber defence firm Norkom today. BAE offered £2.10 per Norkom share, valuing Norkom at £217m.The US had a better day’s trading after investment bank JPMorgan Chase published a record set of fourth-quarter results, lifting its profits by 47 per cent.JPMorgan shares added 3.3 per cent this afternoon. Its stock has risen 8.3 per cent so far this year.Strength in banking stocks helped offset US government data that showed December retail sales slightly weaker than expected.High petrol prices helped push December consumer prices up at the fastest pace in a year and a half, a separate dataset showed.“Positive Q4 profit growth from JPMorgan helped offset surprisingly poor consumer confidence figures and retail sales,” said Yusuf Heusen, senior sales trader at IG Index. “Today’s negative figures appear to reflect consumer dissatisfaction with elevated fuel prices and a high unemployment rate, but investors will be hoping the bullish quarterlies seen today and yesterday can continue to boost equities into next week, when a whole raft of company reports are due,” he said.

Kraft hit by Cadbury and commodities

first_img Show Comments ▼ Kraft hit by Cadbury and commodities Thursday 10 February 2011 8:45 pm Tags: NULL KRAFT FOODS saw its quarterly income drop 24 per cent on last year as the cost of taking over UK confectioner Cadbury began to bite. Net income at the owner of Oreo cookies and Philadelphia cheese fell to $540m (£335.5m) from $710m a year ago, in part due to costs linked to Cadbury and to the rising price of corn, sugar and cocoa. Revenues rose 30 per cent to $13.8bn, slightly ahead of consensus estimates, including a 26.2 percentage point gain from acquiring Cadbury in a controversial deal last February. Cadbury fared badly in North America in the fourth quarter, with net revenues dropping 6.1 per cent after lower sales of Trident and Stride chewing gum.Cadbury turnover in Europe was flat, with a decline in southern Europe offsetting what Kraft said were strong sales in the UK. Operating income in Europe fell 27.7 per cent to $159m, as costs linked to integrating Cadbury wiped out half of the division’s profit.In emerging markets, where Kraft hopes to grow through its takeover of Cadbury, the group saw revenues rise 73.5 per cent with 61 percentage points coming through Cadbury.Kraft forecast profit growth of between 11 and 13 per cent excluding integration costs this year, which has been scaled back from predictions of “mid-teens” growth in November’s update. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Tesco backs Fresh & Easy

first_imgThursday 3 March 2011 8:22 pm Tesco backs Fresh & Easy KCS-content TESCO’S new chief executive Philip Clarke is to continue the US expansion strategy of his predecessor Sir Terry Leahy despite ongoing losses in the market, the group said yesterday.Tesco said its Fresh & Easy brand was opening two new stores in California with a further ten due to open across the state before the end of April this year.Clarke’s decision to plough ahead with the stores is a key show of support for Leahy’s strategy for the chain, which made a £95m loss in the six months to the end of August. Fresh & Easy currently has more than 160 stores but half-year sales were £247m.It is not expected to turn a profit until the 2012-13 financial year but breaking into the US market is an important long-term goal for Tesco. Shore Capital analyst Clive Black said this year would be critical to determine whether Fresh & Easy was on the path to profitability.Clarke took over from Leahy on Wednesday. whatsapp whatsapp Share Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Portugal hit by rating downgrade

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Tuesday 15 March 2011 10:06 pm whatsapp INTERNATIONAL ratings agency Moody’s has downgraded Portugal’s sovereign debt rating and assigned it a negative outlook.Its rating of Portugal’s long-term government bonds is now A3, down from A1, following a review initiated last year.The downgrade was driven by subdued growth prospects in the country while it restructures its economy.Moody’s said Portugal’s continued reliance on external financing hindered its position, whilst the possibility of government intervention to save its banks would also have an impact.However, the credit rating agency also noted Portugal’s progress so far, particularly in its labour market reform and efforts towards fiscal consolidation.

Lloyds TSB was also targeted.An HSBC spokesman said: “We feel that damage to our branches is entirely unjustified. HSBC is a top ten UK tax payer. In 2010 we paid £1.12bn tax in the UK, equal to almost all profit made from UK personal and business customers. As for security, our priority is the safety of our staff, branches can be repaired.”Many businesses across London were privately angry yesterday, with some worried that the riots would damage the UK’s image as an investment centre. The overall cost of lost business this weekend could come to £5m. John Lewis said its takings were down 20 per cent on Saturday. Others – including Sir Philip Green’s Topshop – face clean-up costs which could run into tens of thousands. Councils are also bracing themselves for a bumper clean-up operation. Westminster Council had 100 street cleaners working throughout the night on Saturday and all day yesterday. Trafalgar Square was daubed with paint and the lions at the foot of Nelson’s Column were defaced.The council’s cabinet member for business, Brian Connell, said: “It’s ironic and regrettable that a minority of people claiming to defend jobs are content to damage the livelihoods of the thousands employed in the capital.”At least 250,000 people joined the protest, which ended with 201 arrests.
