Commercial law firm goes from strength to strength as fee income rises by a fifth

27th June, 2013

Leading commercial law firm Aaron & Partners has announced a sharp rise in its annual fees by more than £1m in the past 12 months.
Fees at the Chester-based firm have increased by 19.6pc, with a total fee income of just under £7m.

Aaron and Partners’ Chief Executive Officer Andy Duxbury said he was ‘absolutely delighted’ by a strong performance all round and paid tribute to the firm’s ‘hard-working and dedicated staff.’
“We have a great financial base, we’re profitable and we continue to invest from a position of strength,” said Andy (pictured). “Whilst the market is still volatile and many of our competitors are finding life tough, we are thriving and have a very clear focus of what we are trying to achieve.”

Strong performances from the company’s Litigation; Family; Wills, Trusts and Tax; Commercial and Corporate departments have helped to achieve the successful results, which come after it announced the acquisition of a niche practice in Shropshire.

Aaron & Partners have pledged investment and the creation of new jobs in Shrewsbury following the takeover of Bennett’s Legal in Shrewsbury.
The move is the latest step in planned expansion by Aaron & Partners, which gained ABS status in January, the first commercial law firm in Cheshire to do so.
Andy Duxbury added: “We are extremely optimistic about the future as we continue to grow. This programme of investment includes people as we recruit more highly specialised solicitors, invest in new infrastructure, particularly IT and purchase new office facilities.“We are undoubtedly the ‘go to’ firm in the region for commercial clients and have a proven track record in working for high net worth individuals.”

Aaron & Partners employs 102 people in total. In 2012 it won more plaudits than any of its Cheshire-based rivals in the highly regarded Legal 500 directory for the third year running and received top reviews in the prestigious Chambers UK 2013 rankings.
