Comments

Clarion has reported strong growth with an increase in turnover of more than 25 per cent year on year for the period May to November 2011, 10 per cent ahead of target.

Since its launch five years ago, Clarion has established itself as a leading player on the Leeds legal scene and has continued to grow despite challenging market conditions.   The firm is aiming to exceed £8m turnover for its full accounting year (June 2011 to May 2012) compared with turnover of £6.7m for the period to 31 May 2011.

“2011 was another year of strong growth for Clarion both in terms of profits and turnover and we are confident that the momentum we have built will continue during 2012,” comments Mark Burns, managing partner.  “We have continued to invest in the business whilst maintaining profit margins, recruiting more than 30 new members of staff over the last 12 months and we will also see another key milestone in the firm’s development when we move into our 15,000sq ft refurbished offices at Elizabeth House in the summer.

“We feel that all the hard work invested in building our brand and reputation over the last five years is really starting to pay off.  Although we and our clients have faced an extremely tough economic environment, the downturn has also presented some opportunities with businesses which are able to offer first rate levels of service more cost-effectively proving able to buck the trend.  As one of the leading firms in the region, we are consistently winning new blue chip clients and proving a viable alternative to some of our larger competitors.”

Burns continues: “We have seen particularly strong growth in our intellectual property practice as well as in our corporate and commercial practices.  Our latest client satisfaction survey shows an overwhelmingly constructive response with the majority of clients highly rating Clarion’s commerciality, technical advice and ‘straight-talking’ delivery.  It is the strength of our performance and our investment in client relationships which we believe will secure our continuing success.”

Clarion has a 100 strong team, including 19 partners.

The firm offers ten specialist service areas consisting of corporate, commercial and IP; corporate recovery; private client; employment; property; dispute resolution; family, debt recovery; costs and litigation funding; and Clarion Advocates (formerly business crime and regulatory).
