Bircham turnover breaks £30m mark as PEP hits £300K

Bircham Dyson Bell

has broken the £30m and £300,000 barriers for its turnover and profit per equity partner (PEP) figures and is on course with its aim to crack The Lawyer’s UK100 top 50 within five years.

The firm, which has a June-to-May financial year, has posted a £30.1m turnover figure, a 22 per cent increase on its previous year’s result of £24.7m.

The 2005-06 PEP figure has risen by £81,000 from £229,000 last year to £310,000 – an increase of 35 per cent.

Managing partner Guy Vincent said: “We have just finalised our five-year business plan, which aims to see us break through the £50m barrier by 2011, while at the same time allowing us to continue a steady increase in PEP year on year. These results are a very positive first step.”

Vincent took over from Michael Wood as managing partner in August last year.

Birchams secured instructions from more than 100 petitioners against the £13bn CrossRail scheme.
