A fast-growing commercial law firm, which recently celebrated hitting £1.55m turnover, has announced plans to double in size over the next twelve months.
St James’ Square – set to celebrate its second birthday on March 13th – moved to a new 7000-square foot office at Esh Plaza, Newcastle Great Park last July.
After outperforming 2017 in the first quarter of 2018, the firm trebled 2017’s turnover last year and now is focused on doubling its client base, turnover and team. St James’ Square currently employs 28 members of staff.
Paul Monaghan, managing partner of St James’ Square said: “Last year the firm went from strength to strength. We started the year with 12 employees, ended with 28 and moved to bigger premises.
“Demand for our services has been strong and continues to increase. Currently we are establishing three new departments – Corporate Services, Employment & HR and Debt Recovery – to ensure we can serve marketplace need.”
Partner, Andrew Carser added: “We never thought that we would have the scale of growth and success that we’re currently enjoying so early on in our firm’s history.
“Our growth is testament to the hard work and dedication of all of our employees who always go the extra mile and the continued support of our ever-growing client-base. We’re delighted to be employing more people and further enhancing the service that we offer our clients.”
