Maidstone-based law firm celebrates a strong performance
Brachers continues to invest in its future having celebrated its most successful financial year in 2018, with a record turnover.
The firm saw exceptional financial performance across both its business services and private client divisions, with overall turnover increasing by just shy of 10% to £13.5million, every practice area experiencing some growth.
Corporate and commercial work in particular experienced strong growth with an increase in transactional work and the addition of a new commercial partner in 2017 contributing to the improved performance.
The firm’s continued emphasis on nurturing all stakeholder relationships and adhering to high quality standards with their dual regulation (SRA and FCA) has remained a key focus for the firm. Over the course of the 17/18 financial year they provided over £30,000 worth of support in sponsorships and donations to their local community.
The results of the firm’s efforts have been recognised with the ranking of 25 practice areas in the leading legal directories and recent shortlisting at the General Practice Awards, STEP Private Client Awards and Insider Dealmaker Awards.
Managing Partner, Jo Worby, said: “This really is a tremendous result for Brachers. Our commitment to the region and putting clients at the heart of everything we do have been key contributors to our growth. We would like to thank all our clients and referrers, for their trust and support. I continue to be impressed by and proud of our skilled, hard-working team who strive for client service at its best. Our colleagues and their values drive the firm every day and I look forward to continued growth and greater heights in 2019.”
The firm enters the New Year from a position of financial strength and are carrying forward that positive outlook as they look ahead to celebrating 125 years of operation in 2020.
