The firm just concluded its second record-breaking year in a row, with revenue up 33% and profits per partner up 25% during that time, and the addition of Therese and other talented partners puts even more wind at our backs, and offers our clients more depth and breadth in key areas. This is a very exciting time for Mintz."
