Freeths celebrate most successful year to date
9th June 2016
Top 60 UK law firm Freeths LLP has recently announced financial figures which mark their most successful year to date.
With an annual fee income of £63.8 million, this is a 14.37% increase from 2015. The Sheffield office of Freeths has seen a significant office growth of 40% over the past year with new staff hires and client acquisitions. The most recent additions to the team include Oliver Jackson, Max Marrison and Peter Crawford as partners and Lisa Wallis, solicitor. John May, managing partner for Manchester, commented: --The news of our financial achievements, locally and nationally, is testament to the hard work of our staff. We recognised that these successful financial results were only achieved by all members of staff putting in a great deal of hard work and commitment over the past 12 months. As a result, all staff were rewarded with a 6.65% bonus payment in May. We work hard as a team to deliver the results our clients want and we are lucky to also be able to invest time and resource to the local community, in schemes such as Right to Read and various charity fundraising events, which we look forward to continuing throughout the year. With 11 offices across the UK, Freeths now has a presence in the majority of the main cities and has seen staff numbers increase from 683 in 2015 to a current total of 742. The firm has a client base ranging from local businesses and public sector organisations to national and international household names. Alongside being ranked in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for and being accredited as a best company 2015, Freeths has been recognised for its diversity with two new awards. The UK Diversity Legal Awards gave Freeths the title of 'Firm of the Year', and Stonewall recognised the firm as a Diversity Champion.
