The international firm moved north both physically and on the ledger in 2012 in Atlanta. Paul Hastings left the Bank of America Plaza for the Proscenium building at Peachtree and 14th streets in Midtown. Meanwhile, revenues and profits, which had remained flat or ticked downward over the past couple of years, rebounded slightly in 2012. Philip J. Marzetti, a partner in the firms tax practice, predicted the hot practice areas will be payment systems, health care, IP litigation, real estate and employment law.
