Collas Crill had a busy year in terms of both work and its development. The firm said group revenue had risen by more than 10 per cent year-on-year.
Strategically, the standout move was a merger with Cayman firm Charles Adams Ritchie & Duckworth at the end of the year, gifting Collas Crill a Cayman office. For the time being the firm is trading as Collas Crill & CARD in Cayman.
The move followed Collas Crill's launch in London at the end of 2013, and just four years after its formation through the merger of Collas Day and Crill Canavan.
Overall, however, lawyer numbers were static on the previous year at 57, while partner numbers rose from 26 to 27. The firm's partner-to-associate ratio rose marginally from 1:1 to 1:1.1.
