Solid start for Weightmans

Law firm Weightmans has recorded a solid financial performance in the first half of the financial year.

The firm announced a turnover of £24 million in the half year ending October 31.

Last year the company recorded annual turnover of £50 million after recording half year results of £22.6 million.

Managing partner Patrick Gaul said: “We have increased overall production as compared to this time last year by nine per cent and all our core practice areas are performing well.

“We have invested substantially in the business in the last couple of years. We will continue to do so but keep a close eye on all aspects of financial performance on an ongoing basis given market conditions.”
