In brief: Dibbs hits the £100m mark on fee income

Dibb Lupton Alsop's fee income last year topped £100m for the first time ever, the firm says. Nigel Knowles, managing partner said breaking the £100m figure had been his first target following the merger of Dibb Lupton Broomhead and Alsop Wilkinson last September. The firm has appointed 11 new partners – four in Manchester, four in London, two in Leeds and one in Sheffield, bringing the total to 220.
