For the period between 6 February and 8 April 2014, Pinsents managed to close Slaughters’ lead from 27 additional clients down to 23.
New clients for Pinsents during the period include the likes of growth capital business Adamas Finance Asia, home safety product manufacturer Sprue Aegis and mobile payment services company Mi-Pay Group.
However, when it comes to stock market client market cap Linklaters is leading the pack with a total of £824.8bn.
Allen & Overy also made huge gains during the period, bulking up its total from £564.6bn to £722bn - an increase of 27.9 per cent thanks to adding clients such as Royal Dutch Shell and Morrisons supermarkets. The development pushed Slaughters from third into fourth place in the listings, despite the market cap of its clients growing from £569.4bn to £603.9bn.
Slaughters maintained its lead at the helm of the FTSE 100 client table, with 31 clients - pushing ahead of its closest competitor Linklaters with 28 and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer with 24.
Meanwhile, Pinsents retained its position at the top of the Aim rankings, bulking up its yield of clients from 52 to 54.
Recently-merged WraggeLawrence Graham took the fourth spot in the rankings with 38 clients. The tie-up with legacy Wragge & Co failed to bolster Lawrence Graham’s esteemed Aim practice, with its total number of clients playing in the space remaining static on legacy Lawrence Graham’s total in the previous quarter.
