Meanwhile, Browne Jacobson‘s turnover broke £30m for the first time this year.
The firm posted a turnover figure of £30.2m, up 11.5 per cent from last year’s £27.1m.
The Birmingham office made a significant contribution to the total figure, with year-on-year growth of 51 per cent to £5.8m.
New clients for the firm have included the East Midlands Legal Services Partnership, Blueprint and Advantage West Midlands.
Managing partner Brian Smith says the firm’s health and insurance practices were the top performers along with the recently expanded Birmingham office.
“We’ve focused a great deal of investment this year in terms of our Nottingham facilities, our people, our IT and our Birmingham office expansion,” he says.
