Weightmans re-elects Schorah and Cutts to serve second term

National LB100 firm Weightmans has re-elected its management team of John Schorah and Dan Cutts to serve another three year term commencing 1 May 2016.

Managing partner John Schorah (pictured right) and senior partner Dan Cutts (pictured left) have worked at the firm for 12 and 15 years respectively. In July this year they oversaw the firm’s merger with Leeds-based firm Ford & Warren which established an offering in Yorkshire and added one office to Weightmans’ existing ten offices across the UK.

Commenting on his re-election, John Schorah said: ‘for us, the Weightmans way is about our people delivering expert knowledge, outstanding client service and quality advice, consistently. As a firm, we have hired key people, expanded in the areas our clients have asked us to, and are being rewarded by excellent rankings, awards and client feedback. We look to build on our success and keep moving forward. Exciting times ahead.’

Cutts added: ‘We will both continue to manage and motivate our teams in our 11 offices across the country, so that we can strengthen our business and continue to exceed client expectation.’

Weightmans, which is listed at number 44 in this year’s Legal Business 100, posted modest revenue growth of 2.5% for the 2014/15 financial year. Revenue, which rose from £87m to £89.2m is at a slower pace than last year when the firm enjoyed revenue growth of 6.6% across all business lines, with many practice areas exceeding annual targets.
