In next week’s issue, The Lawyer will be looking into its crystal ball – discussing future trends at the bar and the weighty challenges to be faced by London’s top sets in coming years.
But for the time being, it looks as if many sets were back in growth mode in the 2013/14 financial year. No5 Chambers, Hardwicke and Landmark have had particularly barnstorming years – with the latter showing revenue growth of almost 24 per cent.
It’s not just the bar that has reason to celebrate. As figures continue to pour in for The Lawyer UK 200 rankings, it appears that a huge number of firms saw their revenue bounce upwards quite significantly last year.
