Leading South East law firm Stevens & Bolton LLP has this week broken into The Lawyer’s Top 100 UK law firms by turnover. This comes after the firm featured in the Legal Business Top 100 UK law firms last month.
This is the first time the firm has broken into either ranking and comes after 6 consecutive years of growth in turnover, culminating in a 13% revenue increase in the financial year ended 30 April 2015 which took turnover up to £22.4m, which represents a doubling of turnover in 10 years. The Lawyer commented “Each year a number of firms do escape the confines of the second 100. This year Guildford-headquartered Stevens & Bolton……. breaks into the top 100 in 93rd place. The message is clear. For any firm with a clear growth strategy, decisive leadership and the ability to differentiate itself the UK market for the past 10 years has been a land of opportunity”.
Ken Woffenden, Managing Partner of Stevens & Bolton LLP, commented “At the heart of our strategy is our commitment to long term sustainable and profitable growth. We are delighted to see that our delivery of this objective has now been validated by the two most prestigious benchmarking surveys of the UK legal market, which both show we are now firmly within the Top 100 UK law firms. We are grateful for all the support we have received from our people and our clients in achieving these important milestones”.
