BPE Solicitors has been named as one of the top 200 law firms in the UK according to The Lawyer’s UK 200 Annual Report 2014.
The South West law firm has experienced a year of record growth, growing 8% since 2013 and 30% since 2010.
“We are thrilled to be back in the top 200”, stated BPE’s Senior Partner, John Workman. “When you consider there are 10,500 law firms in the UK, it’s no mean feat, and a huge accolade to the hard work of all our colleagues.”
A flurry of high value deals for the firm’s Corporate team, rapid growth amongst its Property, Employment, Family and Private Client teams, and continued investment in its people, has all helped contribute to a successful few years for the Gloucestershire based law firm.
“This year has seen major changes at BPE,” continued John. “The launch of our new brand has made a big difference to how we approach new business and how existing clients perceive us. Our acquisition of Leigh Young will impact even more positively on turnover next year and allows us access to the exciting and entrepreneurial business community in and around Stroud, South Gloucestershire and the M5 corridor.
2013/14 was a record-breaker year for the UK’s legal market according to the report in the October issue of The Lawyer, with revenue and headcount numbers for the top 200 UK headquartered firms all at record level.
