Law firm’s revenue rises on back of ‘transformational’ period

Birmingham law firm Clarke Willmott has reported positive results from 2021/22, with revenue of £59.6m – up 12% on the prior year.

Stephen Rosser, CEO, said: “The last two years have been transformational for the firm.

“After a decade of improvements, we have moved the firm onto an excellent footing for future growth. Our results are a consequence of the hard work undertaken by everyone at the firm and the great support from our diverse client base from whom we have received more instructions than ever, on increasingly complex and interesting work.

“Changes implemented during the pandemic have become our new normal and we have a thriving culture built on flexible, collaborative and supportive working.”

He added: “Whilst there are clearly significant challenging headwinds for all businesses in the UK and more broadly, we are building on the lessons learned and investments made during the pandemic by aligning all of the strands of our growth strategy to provide a long term, sustainable future for the firm.

“Our ESG commitments, property strategy and our fully flexible approach to work all contribute. One of the most visible manifestations of this work relates to the changes in our properties.

“In summer 2021 we moved to a smaller but more environmentally sustainable location in Birmingham. In spring 2022 we fully overhauled and modernised our Taunton office. Plans are now underway for a move from our current location in Bristol to top rated sustainable office space at new development Assembly C in spring 2023.”
