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.
SJ Berwin is on track to bolster its turnover for the third year running, after reporting a 19 per cent increase in gross revenue at the half-year mark.
The double-digit increase in revenue follows last financial year’s 23 per cent increase in total turnover and cements the firm’s return to grace after a disappointing 5 per cent drop in turnover in 2002/03.
Senior partner David Harrell confirmed that turnover was up 19 per cent to an estimated £58m compared to £49m this time last year. He said this left the firm on track to meet its budget of a 15 per cent increase in turnover to £140m for the 2005/06 financial year.
Harrell said growth had been seen across all of the firm’s practice groups and offices internationally, although the corporate group had enjoyed a very successful first six months.
