The results follow a 32.5 per cent hike last year following several mergers (9 May 2012).

The firm said its insurance division had grown by 8.7 per cent and commercial work had increased by 6.5 per cent last year.

Most recently, Weightmans promoted four lawyers to its partnership (1 May 2013) and added a team from collapsed Scottish firm Semple Fraser (11 March 2013), which saw the firm open in Glasgow.

The firm’s incoming management has laid out plans to grow the firm further, particularly in London, including continuing to diversify its insurance practice (29 April 2013).

Managing partner John Schorah said the financial results were testament to the hard work of Weightmans’ staff, and were a result of the firm’s committment to “exceptional client service, innovative solutions and above all, teamwork”.

He promised further investment in the firm over the coming 12 months.
