Watson Burton storms to another record year

Newcastle firm Watson Burton has enjoyed its second record year, with turnover up 29 per cent.

The firm posted figures of £13.8m for the financial year to April 30, up from £10.7m in 2003. Revenue in 2003 was itself a rise of 27 per cent from 2002’s £8m. Profits per partner have yet to be finalised.

Senior partner Andrew Hoyle puts Watson Burton’s success down to the quality of his staff and added: “There’s been a lot of hard work. Good teamwork is what we’ve got going at the moment.”

The firm converted to LLP status on 1 May and will shortly be moving to new offices to accommodate the expanding practice.
