31st October, 2019
Annual fee income at Chester law firm has surpassed a record-breaking £10.5 million
The firm, who employ over 140 partners and staff across its Chester and Shrewsbury offices, have invested in growing and developing their team
Leading Chester legal practice Aaron & Partners is celebrating after a third consecutive year of increased annual income, that saw fees grow by more than 8 per cent to over £10.5 million for the 12 months to the end of April 2019.
The announcement comes following a significant year for the firm, with the appointment of a new Senior Partner to lead the future growth strategy.
Nick Clarke, who joined Aaron & Partners in 1999, has taken on the position, with Simon Edwards stepping down from the role after 22 years.
The increase from last year’s total marks a milestone in the firm’s 36-year history as annual fees surpass the £10 million mark for the first time, with all of the firm’s teams across its offices in Chester and Shrewsbury matching or improving on their results from 2017/18.
The increase in income has allowed the firm to invest in developing its people and recruiting new staff members to broaden the firm’s expertise.
“The past 12 months has been a time of change for us as a firm, but I’m very proud that the firm has achieved another year of impressive growth across all of our offices, said Nick Clarke, Senior Partner at Aaron & Partners.
“As an organisation we have never been stronger, and we owe our success to the talented and driven people we have.
“We pride ourselves on providing our clients with excellent service and our continued growth is a reflection of the work we do for our clients.”
Aaron & Partners is also celebrating another year of impressive rankings in both The Legal 500 and The Chamber & Partners guide – recognised independent industry guides to the top professional working in the top legal practices.
Independently, Aaron & Partners’ 121-strong Chester team saw fees increase by 7 per cent year-on-year reflecting an impressive year for the team in Cheshire.
