Moore Blatch has entered the top 100 law firms by revenue, as ranked by The Lawyer, after it grew by 7.1% to ¬£24.3 million in 2017. In September, it also appointed a new managing partner who becomes the youngest in the top 100.
Moore Blatch, which employs over 300 staff across their offices in Southampton, Lymington, Richmond and the City of London, has grown both organically and through targeted acquisitions. In June this year it acquired Richmond law firm, Calvert Smith & Sutcliffe.
Ed Whittington, managing partner, commented: “Moore Blatch invested heavily in its people, their working environment and technology to support them. In the summer we relocated 200 employees from central Southampton to new offices on the outskirts of the city. Staff numbers have increased by 25%, including a 15% increase in partners. We have also invested over ¬£1 million in new technology. As a result, we are now a top 100 law firm, and one that has ambition and, more importantly, the ability to continue this growth for the benefit of our staff and their clients.”
