Managing Partner Mike Leeman said: “After what has been a difficult and uncertain period, we are delighted with our end of year results which shows an increase in volume of cases and turnover across all of our departments.

“Delivering such a high volume of work while the team have been operating flexibly with a mix of home and office working is truly a credit to them and is a demonstration of our commitment as a firm to both our employees and our clients.

“Over the years we have invested in market leading technology that allows clients to work with us digitally whilst allowing the team to benefit from increased agility across all areas.

Millbank House includes an open plan workspace, boardroom, interview rooms and a number of breakout areas alongside communal gardens.

Mr Leeman added: “Due to the rapid growth of the firm in the last several years, we’ve invested into our team and in the last 12 months alone have brought on 22 new recruits across all departments including three apprentices.

“With so much uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and what it would mean for the legal sector, it would have been easy for us to minimise our outgoings and simply get through it, but we believe that investing into people and into technology is worth the risk and for us, that’s been the case.”
