Law firm Eversheds is continuing its UK expansion as the work keeps coming in.
Its half year figures for 2007-2008 show double digit growth in turnover, up 10 per cent to £196 million.
Eversheds says it remains ahead of target in delivering its growth plans and profit targets thanks to continued success across its offices where Birmingham is a major player.
It also points to ongoing European and international expansion, including an association with Balcar Polansky Eversheds in Prague and Bratislava.
Last year the firm posted £356 million in annual revenue, with profit growth up 14 per cent to £75.3 million and a record profit per equity partner of £502,000, 20 per cent ahead.
Commenting on the half year figures, Sue Lewis, senior office partner at Eversheds in Birmingham, said: "We continue to achieve steady, profitable growth across all practice groups and sectors of the firm.
"These results are in line with our three year plan to deliver across our business. The strategy is clearly working for our people and our clients."
Birmingham saw a successful first six months, including the appointment of experienced employment lawyer, Michael Ord, who relocated from Newcastle.
Ms Lewis said: "These are exciting times for the firm as we continue to innovate and expand in the region, across the UK and internationally.
"It has been a particularly busy time for the team in Birmingham, which has worked on some of the region's high profile projects. These include The Cube, Martineau Galleries and advising Sims UK, part of the Sims Group, the largest metals recycling company in the world, on the acquisition of the West-Midlands based company ER Coley (Steel)."
A total of 585 staff work at Eversheds in Birmingham including 46 partners.
