Fox Rothschild's firmwide managing part- ner, Mark L. Silow, attributed the firm's reve- nue growth in 2011 to a combination of "growth in headcount and organic growth." In addition to the bump in revenue, the firm also saw its PPP rise 3.5 percent, from $565,000 in 2010 to $585,000 in 2011, and its profit margin grow by two percentage points, from 32 in 2010 to 34 in 2011. Silow said the firm was able to increase its profitability while still focusing on growing its top line.
