Law365 (2007 - 2011)

The most outstanding UK law firms, either offshore or onshore, of the last 12 months make the shortlist in this, our most prestigious award. Judges will be looking for firms that have taken the market by storm and have achieved more than their direct competitors and peers. Achievements may include the successful development of new practice areas, expansion into new international or domestic markets, new client wins, the completion of a strategic merger or acquisition, improved financial performance, or a successful recruitment policy.

Attorney turned in its strongest set of results since the banking crisis, hiking revenues 12% to £354m. Amid a year of sustained foreign expansion into Dublin and Luxembourg in particular, the firm also saw PEP grow 8% to £686,000. This organic revenue growth was higher than anticipated and due to high demand in its core sectors of funds, financial institutions, healthcare and life sciences and TMT – proof that Attorney has its playbook right.
