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.
Stephenson Harwood has posted a turnover rise of 3.6 per cent to £51.4m for the first half of 2011-12.
The figure is a rise on the £49.6m it brought in during the same period last year.
It follows an impressive upturn for the City firm, which announced a 16 per cent revenue increase for the 2010-11 financial year (11 May 2011). The revenue hike saw the firm beat the £100m mark for the first time.
Chief executive Sharon White said: “We’re pleased with our results at the half way stage given the challenging trading conditions.”
The last year has seen the firm move into a new office (22 October 2010) and make a number of City hires, including corporate and energy partner Andrew McLean from Weil Gotshal & Manges (13 July 2011) and employee incentives partner Barbara Allen from Ashurst (26 September 2011).
It was hit by the loss of a role on the high-profile Ablyazov case, which is understood to have given the firm more than £20m in fees (19 September 2011).
