First-to-file firms score double-digit growth

UK-based firms Osborne Clarke, Browne Jacobson, Clarke Willmott and Fladgate have all recorded double-digit revenue growth for the 2014/15 financial year, while Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP)’s partner profits reached new heights.

In a sign that the UK legal market is at its most buoyant since the 2008 financial crisis, each of Browne Jacobson’s five national offices scored sharp workload rises, with Manchester surging by 73% and London turnover up by 61%. The firm made an additional £8.7m in the last financial year, climbing to £58.9m.
