Technology boutique Kemp Little has reported a 15 per cent increase in turnover for the 2015/16 financial year to £12.2m.

Turnover rose from £10.6m in 2014/15. The firm said growth was driven by strong performances from its technology and corporate teams.

The firm advises a range of technology companies ranging from start-ups to more than 10 FTSE 100 companies.

Towards the end of the financial year Kemp Little appointed four new partners, increasing its partner headcount by 27 per cent. The quartet included Bond Dickinson telecoms head Emma Wright, Pinsent Masons litigation partner Vicky Cooper, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman outsourcing counsel Tania Williams, and Berwin Leighton Paisner employment partner Marian Bloodworth.

Managing partner David Williams said the growth was “a great affirmation that our strategy to mark ourselves out as the preeminent specialist technology law firm is the right one”.
