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.
Bright will be headed by Andy Price, an assistant who led a 10-lawyer personal injury team at Bond Pearce's local arm.
The new firm will focus on corporate and commercial work for small to medium-sized businesses.
Price said: "We're aiming for businesses in the nought to £10m range. We do have a couple of clients larger than that, but that's a good sort of headache to have."
Price will be joined by seven solicitors. These include Julia Moulding, the firm's other partner and a former assistant at Bakers, and Paul Taylor, the former senior partner of Exeter firm Over Taylor Biggs.
