Jersey-headquartered Hatstone continues to expand, and now boasts a team of 28 lawyers across its offices that include such disparate locations as Nottingham and Panama. The expansion helped drive the firm to an 11 per cent revenue rise last year.
Total headcount rose by 33 per cent, from 30 to 40, and the same increase in lawyer numbers – 21 to 28 – pushes Hatstone several places up the rankings into the top 15. The firm has one of the highest partner-to-associate ratios in the Top 30 at 1:3.7, up from 1:3.2 last year. Female partnership proportion dropped between 2013 and 2014, from 20 per cent to 16.7 per cent.
