Southport Law Firm spreads its wings into Manchester

SOUTHPORT'S Fletchers Solicitors are now 1 of the largest law firms in the UK specialising in clinical negligence, and they are about to open a new office in the heart of Manchester, employing up to 50 people. The office, on the 15th floor in St James’ Tower on Charlotte Street, will be operational by February 2017 creating 1 of the City’s largest specialist clinical negligence teams.

Fletcher’s headquarters will remain in Southport, where 340 people are currently employed across the firm’s clinical negligence and serious personal injury teams, as well as its administrative support. The new office continues the firm’s growth, which has seen it expand from a team of 90 people in 2012, as it aims to enter the UK’s list of Top 100 Law Firms by 2018. In 2016 Fletchers has also experienced strong financial growth with revenue increasing by 37% and profit before Tax by 50%.

CEO Ed Fletcher said:- “Manchester was the logical choice for our 2nd location, with the City firmly established as the capital of UK clinical negligence practice. We will be aiming to add the brightest and best lawyers to our already successful team. Maintaining the same working practices and culture that led to Fletchers being named as 1 of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work earlier in 2016.”

Fletchers Cites investment and innovation as the reasons for its impressive growth, creating what it describes as the future model for law firms. Ed Fletcher adds:- “The growth that has led us to opening the Manchester office is the result of ongoing innovation that touches every part of our business model. From a marketing plan that has given us control over our own pipeline of new cases, to the introduction of non legal specialists as non-executive directors to help expand our vision and skills. As a result of these innovations, we have been able to champion the cause of fast and fair settlements in clinical negligence law, helping to strike the right balance between the rights of injured patients and the public interest. Our approach is increasingly being seen by the sector as the model for future law firms that want sustainable success in a rapidly changing legal sector. As a result, we are now recognised by leaders in our field with accreditations from Legal 500, Chambers and our Investors in People Gold Award.”
