LB100 Central – Fighting Back

Two years of holding the dubious distinction of being the worst performing peer group in the LB100 based on revenue has acted as a call to arms to law firms in central England and Wales.

The past year has seen the region consolidate at a storming rate to reverse the slide, climbing above the South and Scotland peer groups.

Ipswich-based Birketts posted a 12% annual increase in turnover to £26.7m following its first full financial year since amalgamating with nine-partner Chelmsford outfit Wollastons in September 2010.
