Addleshaw Goddard targets return to UK top 20

After a turbulent year politically and a disappointing half a decade in terms of the firm’s financials, Addleshaw Goddard is rolling out a new five-year strategy focused on financial performance, as we report here.

The strategy has set out a number of financial key performance indicators and demonstrates a clear shift in emphasis from the delivery innovations of Paul Devitt’s tenure to the pursuit of significant improvement in the firm’s key financial metrics.

Since managing partner John Joyce was elected in May, there have been a series of management changes and new staff remuneration initiatives launched.

Having seen a bit of a partner purge this year, high performance appears to be being encouraged and rewarded far more overtly than it was in the past. Those that have weathered the worst will be hoping it hasn’t come too late.
