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.
Newcastle-based Dickinson Dees has posted a 17 per cent rise in turnover to £56m for the 2006-07 financial year along with a 14 per cent increase in average profit per equity partner (PEP), to £366,000.
The figures are a return to form after last year’s disappointing results, which saw PEP drop from £326,000 to £321,000.
The firm said that its growth strategy, which saw it open new premises in London and acquire Philip Ashworth & Co in York, had continued to deliver impressive results.
Managing partner Neil Braithwaite said 2006 had been a year of “substantial growth”, with the firm strengthening its reputation both locally and nationally.
“|This is reflected in the wins in both the private and public sector over the past 12 months,” added Braithwaite. “Our previous investment into the business has provided a successful springboard for the firm’s future growth across all practice areas.”
