Law firm makes national top 100 list for the first time
A LAW firm which has offices in Southport has been ranked in the top 100, following a continued period of growth.
Fletchers Solicitors, which has a base on Hoghton Street as well as Manchester, has made the Top 100 list, which ranks the largest firms by revenue, for the first time. In the last financial year, its turnover has increased by 43% taking it to £26.8 million.
Profitability (EBITDA) has increased from £1 million in 2017 to £6 million in 2018 due to the continued maturation and expansion of the medical negligence side of the business. The law firm has also made a huge investment in its workforce to support its continued growth and employs 434 staff and plans to continue its focus on its 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.”
