Analysis from The Lawyer

  • Paris

    Speechlys accent on profitability

    Speechly Bircham must look back to 2009/10 with an air of nostalgia. Back then the firm pulled off a merger with Campbell Hooper to boost revenue by 37 per cent, to £58.4m. The tie-up also helped the firm’s average profit per equity partner (PEP) to rocket by 29 per cent, from £331,000 to £428,000.
