This article presents information related to the firm Bryan Cave's 2004 revenues that have dropped slightly on its record 2003. Gross revenue for 2004 was $374m down 2.6 per cent from $384m in 2003. Profitability rocketed 35 per cent the previous year due to the $23m success fee the firm received from Biomedical Systems after the firm won a contract dispute against GE Medical Systems. That alone accounted for around $100,000 extra on the firm's PEP figure. The firm recently rerecruited senator Jack Danforth to the partnership after a spell as the U.S. ambassador to the UN.
