The firm has seen revenues rise to £174.5m for the year ending 30 June, up from £161.5m last year. The firm has grown consistently during the past 10 years, with revenues more than doubling since 2006-07, when the firm took in £78.2m.
Withers has not yet released its 2016-17 profit figures. Last year, the firm saw profit per equity partner (PEP) fall 17% to £305,000.
The firm has also promoted eight lawyers to its partnership, with the six City promotions coming alongside one in the US and one in Hong Kong.
The promotions, which took effect on 1 July, mark an increase on last year, when the firm made up seven lawyers.
Withers CEO Margaret Robertson (pictured) said: “This year’s financial results are very encouraging, and are the result of hard work by our people around the world and focused management of the firm following our substantial international growth over the past few years.
“We are very pleased to be able to recognise the strengths of our next generation of lawyers through the nomination of these eight talented individuals as partners. Their appointments are well deserved and stand the firm in good stead for its future growth.”
