Jim Polsinelli, who in 1972 helped start the Kansas City-based law firm that today bears his last name, has announced his retirement.
In the years since its founding, the firm has grown into one of the top 100 law firms in the world, according to multiple industry publications. Polsinelli PC ranked 69th in the 2018 Am Law 200, published by American Lawyer.
The firm has about 800 attorneys nationwide, according to a press release.
It brought in $475 million in gross revenue in 2017, according to American Lawyer.
“It has been such a kick. Even in my wildest dreams back then, I didn’t anticipate the success of our firm today,” Polsinelli said in the release.
Polsinelli’s last day at the firm will be Jan. 31, 2019.
