Leading North West law firm, SAS Daniels LLP, has billed more than £2 million in Q1, showing a 20 per cent year-on-year increase across the same period.
The firm’s Real Estate team has opened a record number of files in July and the Family and Corporate teams are also major contributors to the figure, with eight corporate deals completed in seven days in the last month alone, including a £7m management buyout.
The announcement follows SAS Daniels’ record £7m annual turnover posted in the financial year to April 2014 and is testament to the firm’s organic growth.
The year-on-year figures for the quarter include 40 per cent growth across the Real Estate team, 33 per cent growth for the Corporate team and 32 per cent increased billings for the Family team.
Commenting on the firm’s success, Jeremy Orrell, Head of the Corporate Team and Finance Partner at SAS Daniels, said: “We posted 80 per cent month-on-month growth in the corporate team in July with highly concentrated deal activity, and the quarterly figures are indicative of sustained growth across the firm, which is incredibly encouraging.
“While the market is, without doubt, more buoyant than it was last year, our growth is tracking higher than sector averages and is driven by a clear strategy, underpinned by excellent client service.”
SAS Daniels, which has over 70 legal advisors, including 24 partners, operates out of offices in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton.
