Fieldfisher Manchester has announced its results for the financial year 2022/2023, recording strong growth in line with the impressive performance of the wider European firm.
The Manchester office posted a revenue increase of 13% year-on-year, with turnover at the office having doubled in the past six years. Fieldfisher as a firm is celebrating its tenth consecutive year of revenue growth, which has climbed to £370 million – up 11% on the previous financial year. The results reflect revenue growth across all of the firm’s international offices, key sectors and practices. The firm has also further progressed its European expansion agenda this year, with an office opening in Vienna, bringing the office network to 26 offices in 12 countries.
An integral part of the international network, Fieldfisher Manchester has remained an exceptional performer, making a significant contribution to the firm’s overall success this year.
Fieldfisher Manchester’s Managing Partner David Bowcock commented:
“We are delighted with our financial results. The figures reflect the hard work and dedication of the energetic team in Manchester. The national and international work being handled at the firm is extremely high calibre.
“Since developing our full-service offering in the city in 2014, we have grown to become over 200-strong today. Our clients value us for our local insight and for the fact we are backed by a European powerhouse of commercial and legal expertise.”
The Manchester office has doubled down on key areas of growth, including real estate finance, venture capital and employment, pensions, immigration and compliance, as well as personal injury and medical negligence, bringing in new clients and recruiting additional expertise.
The office has added to its partner ranks, with promotions to the partnership for Adam Hattersley and John Smith in the Real Estate Finance team in May, and Construction Partner Jahanara Hussain joined the team earlier this month.
Based at No.1 Spinningfields since 2021, the Manchester team offers a wide breadth of services across the North West, the UK and internationally including corporate, real estate and dispute resolution, as well as regulatory, employment, banking and insolvency and medical negligence, with a dedicated focus on data, privacy, IT and technology.
