The 2019 Regional Leaders: The West

California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington
Total revenue: $2,498.84 million. Average firm growth: 11.15%

Overall revenue was up in the region in 2018, and average firm growth was still very strong, though off just a little bit from 2017. The strongest growth in the West — and, in fact, in the entire report — came from Los Angeles-based Top 100 Firm NKSFB, which engaged in a couple of large mergers, but was also acquired itself, in an unusual arrangement (see footnote). Also showing particularly high rates of growth were Vavrinek, Trine, Day & Co. and Sweeney Conrad. The region was also home to two of this year’s four new Top 100 Firms: Clark Nuber and Gursey | Schneider.
