German multi-disciplinary firm Rödl & Partner has grown global revenue by nearly 5% to €246.4m in the year to December 2011. The firm has increased its headcount to 3,200.
Rödl & Partner said growth was driven by strong demand for international transaction work as companies exploit the financial crisis to expand inside and outside of Germany and strengthen their presence in emerging markets.
Consulting in M&A, company succession, compliance, real estate transactions, financing, rationalisation, restructuring and renewable energy showed strong growth while the firm grew legal services revenue by 8%.
Rödl & Partner said it recorded strong growth in China, Russia, Latin America and Italy. The firm plans to open new offices in New York, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Africa.
“Our key driving force behind the success is the international project business. In this area we are able to fully exploit our strengths of multi-disciplinary services and cross-border consulting,” Rödl & Partner chief executive Christian Rödl said.
