Record £15m revenue for Yorkshire law firm Switalskis
Yorkshire law firm Switalskis is celebrating its 25th year in business with record revenues.
The company generated a turnover of £15m in its latest financial results, a year-on-year increase of more than 25%.
Founded in Wakefield in 1993, Switalskis Solicitors has since grown to employ 260 people across 13 offices throughout Yorkshire.
It currently practises in more than 18 areas of law, including family, property, crime, medical negligence and catastrophic injury.
The firm’s managing director, John Durkan, said: “In many ways, Switalskis is unrecognisable from the practice established in Wakefield 25 years ago.
“However, I’m incredibly proud to say that the growth we have achieved has not been at the expense of the firm’s core ethos of access to justice and a first-class legal service for all.”
He added: “The growth we have achieved is through the diversification of our practice areas, recruiting additional staff, acquiring firms/departments and opening offices in new locations.”
Speaking further, John said Switalskis is investing “significantly” to attract and retain “the highest calibre staff”.
He continued: “This year we introduced our first associate development programme, which saw the promotion of 12 new associates within the team last month.”
