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.
Nottingham-based firm Rothera Dowson held on to its spot in the UK 200 despite seeing no growth in turnover during the year.
Last year the firm was in joint bottom place of The Lawyer’s Chasing 50 list alongside South East firm Blaser Mills and London-based Grundberg Mocatta Rakison. All three posted a turnover figure of £5m.
However, while Rothera Dowson did not manage to better this figure in the 2006-07 financial year, it fared better than its peers with both Grundberg Mocatta Rakison and Blaser Mills seeing turnover drop by 10 per cent to £4.5m.
The 17-partner Rothera Dowson is best known for its family practice. Towards the end of the financial year it made a rare partnership promotion in the shape of associate family solicitor Lorna Sear.
At the same time Amy Rothera, who specialises in wills and probate, was promoted to the position of associate. She is a sixth-generation member of the Rothera family to work at the firm.
