Announcing Another Outstanding Financial Year
We are thrilled to share that June concluded another remarkable financial year-end.
Throughout this period, we witnessed substantial growth across all our main areas of practice, further reinforcing our position as a leading legal service provider.
Over the past year, Bell Lamb & Joynson has experienced a remarkable 16 percent increase in turnover. This stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence and the trust that our clients place in our services. This success resonates across all our key practice areas, including Crime, Conveyancing, Family, and Private Client Services.
To support our extraordinary growth and the expansion of our client base, we also expanded our team by an impressive 21 percent. Notable additions include Jessica Flaherty, our new Head of Private Client, and Andy Burke, who joins us as a dedicated Relationship Manager. These experienced professionals bring their wealth of expertise to our firm. Furthermore, critical new appointments in our Conveyancing and Criminal Teams have further bolstered our capabilities in these essential practice areas.
Commenting on the firm's success, our Managing Partner Mike Leeman stated, "We are immensely proud of our accomplishments over the past year. Our continued growth and success are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team. As we look ahead, we remain committed to providing our clients with the highest level of service and innovative legal solutions."
We are also delighted that Joe Connor, Lily Dehnad, and Lawrence Dunne are all now qualified and have been admitted as solicitors. Their dedication and expertise have been truly remarkable, and we welcome them into their new roles with a deep sense of pride. Additionally, the qualification of Amy Rouse as a Licensed Conveyancer marks yet another significant achievement for our firm.
In addition to expanding our team and client base, we have broadened our presence by inaugurating a new office in Maghull this past April. This marks our fourth office location and strategically positions us to better serve clients in the region. Moreover, we have completed a comprehensive refurbishment of our Liverpool Office, creating a modern and inviting environment for both clients and staff.
Our dedication to excellence is evident in our recent re-accreditation for Lexcel, The Law Society’s esteemed legal practice quality mark, and CQS, The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme. These prestigious quality marks reaffirm our commitment to delivering exceptional service and adhering to the highest standards. Additionally, our "competent plus" rating in the Criminal Peer Review conducted by the Legal Aid Agency every three years underscores our expertise and competence in matters of criminal law.
Our pursuit of excellence has garnered recognition through numerous awards and commendations, further solidifying our position as a top-tier legal service provider. Furthermore, we are actively pursuing ISO9001 accreditation, a globally recognized standard for quality management systems, showcasing our dedication to continuous improvement.
In another significant achievement, we are proud to have been ranked among the top 3 firms in the UK by the Digital Conveyancing Maturity Index. This recognition highlights our proficiency in leveraging digital advancements to enhance client experiences.
As we celebrate these remarkable accomplishments, our firm remains steadfast in our core values of integrity, professionalism, and client-centric service. With our growing team of skilled legal professionals and with our passion for excellence, we look forward to our 203rd year, continuing to provide exceptional legal solutions to our clients across the region.
