Regional law firm tops industry growth report

Posted on: 17/10/2017

Regional law firm Trethowans has been named as the fastest-growing legal firm in the UK for firms with turnover up to £24m.

Trethowans, which has offices in Southampton, Salisbury, Poole and Winchester, was listed number one in The Lawyer, the most detailed statistical analysis of UK firms ranked 101-200 by revenue.

The report explores what has underpinned good results and reveals that Trethowans saw its revenue grow by 22.6 per cent last year, an increase partially attributed to the merger with Poole firm Dickinson Manser but also because of strong underlying growth.

The accolade reinforces the firm’s ambitious growth plans following two years of impressive growth.

Managing partner Chris Whiteley said he was delighted that the report recognises the success of the firm’s strategy to become a top 100 UK practice by 2020 with a turnover target of £20 million.

“We have an extremely robust business and even if we discount the merger, our underlying growth was 14 per cent which has been achieved as a result of the hard work and commitment of every member of the firm,” he said.

“Our wider geographical reach and organic growth will be supplemented by prudent acquisitions and hiring lawyers with a strong client following or additional specialism.  We have already invested in a new office in Winchester and a base in London.”

Trethowans was one of just three firms in the report which produced turnover growth of 20 per cent or more last year.
