International law firm Baker & McKenzie - which employs around 200 people in Belfast - has seen its sales rise to $2.6bn (£2bn).

The firm's total global revenues were up 8% for the year to June 30, 2016, compared to the previous year. Baker & McKenzie set up its Belfast office at the City Quays 1 building last year.

Jason Marty, who heads up the Belfast office, said: "In what was our first full year of operation, our Belfast centre has reached nearly 200 people and worked with all of our offices worldwide, so we're proud to have an important role in these results - a role we expect will only continue to grow in future years."

Baker & McKenzie chairman Eduardo Leite - who launched the company's office here - said 2016 was "another strong year ... despite continued adverse foreign currency headwinds".
