Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

FLETCHERS So­lic­i­tors has been ranked as a top 100 UK law firm, after a con­tin­ued pe­riod of growth.

The firm has made The Lawyer’s Top 100 list, which ranks the 100 largest UK firms by rev­enue.

The law firm, which has of­fices in South­port and Manch­ester, has been work­ing to­wards Top 100 sta­tus for the past cou­ple of years and has re­ported strong in­creases in turnover and profit.

In the last fi­nan­cial year (2017/18), turnover in­creased by 43% tak­ing it to £26.8m.

Prof­itabil­ity (EBITDA) has in­creased from £1m in 2017 to £6m in 2018 due to the con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion of the med­i­cal neg­li­gence side of the busi­ness.

The firm has also made a big in­vest­ment in its work­force to sup­port its con­tin­ued growth, with staffing now at 434.

This has been sig­nif­i­cantly boosted by the open­ing of the Manch­ester of­fice, which now has 50 med­i­cal neg­li­gence lawyers.

The de­vel­op­ment of the team will con­tinue to be a ma­jor part of fu­ture plans, re­in­forc­ing Fletchers’ core val­ues and reaf­firm­ing the rea­sons it was listed in both the Sun­day Times 100 Best Places to Work in 2017 and Great Place to Work UK.

The firm will also con­tinue its fo­cus on be­com­ing num­ber one in the coun­try in the med­i­cal neg­li­gence, se­ri­ous in­jury and mo­tor­bike ac­ci­dent claims sec­tors.

Gary Car­ring­ton, chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer at Fletchers So­lic­i­tors, said: “The whole team at Fletchers has worked in­cred­i­bly hard to get us to the po­si­tion we are now in.

“Mak­ing it into the top 100 UK Law Firms has been our goal for a num­ber of years so we are de­lighted to make it into the list.

“We put peo­ple at the heart of ev­ery­thing we do, whether that is our cus­tomers or staff mem­bers, and this has led to our con­tin­ued growth.

“While we are ob­vi­ously de­lighted to have seen our prof­itabil­ity in­crease, we are pleased that this has been able to hap­pen sus­tain­ably with­out com­pro­mis­ing our val­ues in any way.

“The le­gal sec­tor is rapidly chang­ing but thanks to our team mem­bers be­ing pre­pared for this, we are con­fi­dent that we have an­other good year ahead of us.”
