Michael Chissick on Fieldfisher’s supersized growth, the Big Four threat, and why a US merger is off the agenda

Fieldfisher managing partner Chissick rules out US merger following record results

“We’re not trying to be the biggest law firm,” says Fieldfisher managing partner Michael Chissick. But the firm’s unfettered ascent in recent years tells a different story, with the City outfit now having almost doubled its revenues since 2014 to break the £200m mark for the first time this year.

For Chissick, it is not a quest for world domination that has driven the firm’s recent successes, which have seen its top line rise from £104m in 2013-14 to £207m, and the top of its equity reach an eye-watering £3.2m.
