Results-Driven Legal Services Propels WSHB to Second Fastest Growing Law Firm in the Nation

June 21, 2017

Joining the ranks of the top 200 law firms for 2017 is WSHB. Each year, Law360 ranks the largest U.S.-based law firms by domestic attorney headcount. Showing year-after-year consistent growth since firm inception, WSHB has jumped from number 217 nationally to 197.

“What sets our firm apart from the rest are the consistent results we obtain nationally,” said New York managing partner Mike Coffey. Coffey, who was singled out in the article for the growth experienced by WSHB’s New York location, stated, “we try high exposure, complex cases with success time and again which, in turn, has made our lawyers and handling approach magnetic for clients faced with the uncertainties of trial.”

Accomplishing this firm growth without mergers with other law firms has caught the eye of industry experts. In this regard, WSHB was singled out as one of the top firms in the country to grow numerically without merger.

“Organic growth, as opposed to growing through mergers and acquisition, is important culturally,” said Victoria Ersoff, partner in the Los Angeles office. Ersoff, who joined the firm in its very first year of operation, stated, “who we are, how we handle matters, how we work as teams in a positive environment has not changed from the day I walked in the door – it is a unique environment which allows us to thrive as lawyers, and our clients also benefit.”

Greg Arakawa, who has worked in several of the firm’s offices and now is managing partner of the Northern California office, stated, “how cases are handled is the same from office to office because of the careful way we grow our lawyers and firm. By hiring the ‘best and brightest’ out of law school during their second summers and grooming them to be creative, innovative and aggressive in approaching each case, WSHB turns out some of the brightest and most sought-after trial lawyers.”

WSHB’s national footprint has grown in the past year to include offices in Philadelphia, Chicago and Atlanta. In addition to being celebrated for consistent growth in a challenging legal market, WSHB has won national accolades for being ranked year after year as one of the top ten law firms in the nation for female lawyers. WSHB was also recently ranked again as one of the top 20 law firms in the nation for minority attorneys.
