Independent legal practice Brabners has grown year-on-year revenues by 8% following strong growth across its offices in Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.
Turnover reached £31.4m in the year to 30 April 2018 as the firm benefited from significant investment in its business and people and from its role advising major firms and projects in the region.
Brabners said profit also increased significantly during the period. Among the practices enjoying strong growth were corporate and commercial, dispute resolution and housing and regeneration.
Earlier this year Brabners announced the appointment of a new senior management team. Nik White was elected as the firm’s new managing partner, succeeding Mark Brandwood, and Robert White, a business executive with over 25 years’ experience, was appointed chief executive officer.
Commenting on the growth of Brabners, Nik White said: “The new strategy we’re implementing, which builds on our approach of placing clients at the heart of everything we do, is bearing fruit. Over the past year we’ve invested significantly in our business, helping to make us more efficient and cementing our reputation as an outstanding place to work.
“The impact of these changes is evident in our top and bottom line growth. We are sending a clear signal to the market that we will always invest so we can continue to provide best-in-class service and solutions to our clients.”
Robert White added: “The UK economy is facing a period of real uncertainty, particularly with Brexit. Key to our approach is to position ourselves so we are there for ambitious businesses and individuals when they need proactive solutions and support as they seek to prosper.
“By investing in our business, making Brabners one of the best places to work and by executing our three-year growth plan, we can continue to help our clients to make sense of the rapidly-changing business environment while also maintaining our position as one of the best-performing firms in the region.”
