  • turnover up 84%. Wow.
    net profit up up 41.3%. Wow.

    PEP up, erm, 4% to £429k. So the partners go a bit of above an inflationary pay rise.

    Wonder how much of that increase in profit/PEP came from increase in WIP and therefore accrued income year on year?

    Bet the silver circle boys are really worried.....

  • Net margin down from a worrying 14.2% to a frightening 10.9%.

  • An extra £86 million in turnover gives each partner an extra £17,000 in income. So, on this basis, if they want an extra £170,000 each, they've got to increase turnover by £860 million.

  • Wow! 84%. Stunning. Well done to all those involved.

    I note the grumbles about the PEP, but isn't this expected? Don't shareholders usually wait until the growth to stabilise until before they take huge dividends?

  • DWF marketing/ social media team are pretty slow off the mark today. Not a single post (yet) dismissing the neysayers as jealous....

    Probably too busy giving Gerard Starkey at legal week a nice little exclusive briefing in more detail about their expansion plans as they "refuse to stand still".....

  • Andrew Leaitherland is a genius. He's taken a small firm into the big time. With success, come the critics.

    I'd be interested to see how much turnover has risen in the Newcastle office (since they corrected the mistake of appointing John Flynn as office manager).

  • How much money have the partners had to put in to fund the growth? Is all of that worry worth 17k especially as those numbers will likely fall back next year but the firm's capital requirements will stay the same or possibly increase.
    Frightening stuff.
