Prettys revenues up 13 per cent
East Anglia law firm Prettys, with offices in Ipswich and Chelmsford, has announced a strong trading performance for 2014/15.
The firm has reported a 13 per cent increase in revenue for the year ended April 30. It says that particularly strong performances were experienced in corporate, dispute resolution, employment and commercial property.
Ian Carr (pictured), Prettys CEO, said: “The end of the financial year was a very busy period for the firm across all disciplines and the results are very satisfying, reflecting the hard work put in by the teams.
“The outcome exceeded our expectations and outperforms the majority of other firms in the sector. We have finalised our budget for the current year and forecasting further substantial growth, supported by the energy and enthusiasm from our people and also the increasingly buoyant market place.”
Prettys continues to fulfil its expansion goals, both financially and on a personnel level, with particular focus in the commercial property, corporate, dispute resolution and residential conveyancing markets as a result of increased work levels.
Over the last year the firm has completed several major commercial projects including the complex purchase of Snape Maltings concert hall, retail and residential properties, on behalf of Aldeburgh Music and the purchase, by Maritime Transport, of Roadways Container Logistics – the UK’s fourth largest container haulier. The deal included a total acquisition of assets including 374 employees and 221 vehicles in a multi-site transaction.
