This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
On The Lawyer today there are two heartwarming stories of firms keen to carve out a space for themselves in the new legal world order.
First up is Keystone Law, which has added five lawyers to its ranks - including partners from Salans and Thomas Eggar - and looks to be making good on its threats (or is that promises?) to attract 50 new lawyers and increase turnover from £11.2m to £25m within the next three years.
For those that aren’t au fait with Keystone, the firm has something of a different working model. The firm, which gets by mostly on corporate and commercial work, but also has a growing property practice, has around 100 lawyers, all of whom work from home and are paid on a merit basis, while the only partners - James Knight and William Robins - work on client relationships. All back office staff are housed in a single office to keep costs down.
