UK 200: The Independents

The UK 200: the Independents charts every single one of the 100 firms in the lower half of this year’s top 200, detailing the financial performance of each firm across the UK’s regional hotspots, tracking the firms on a range of key metrics and, where possible, highlighting the strategic moves they are making in an effort to compete in one of the world’s most ferocious markets.

More than a decade ago The Lawyer published the Rising 50, a magazine that extended the coverage in what was then The Lawyer UK 100 to include the next 50 largest firms by revenue, highlighting potential rising stars and future trailblazers. Heading the list in 2004 was the £14.8m, 27-partner Gateley Wareing which this year (as Gateley) became the UK’s first-ever publicly listed law firm, posting a revenue for 2014/15 of £80m.

The message is clear. For firms with a clear growth strategy and decisive leadership the UK market has been a land of opportunity for the past 10 years. For some, it still is.
