Square One Law Celebrates Third Anniversary
As Square One Law celebrates its third anniversary, senior partner Ian Gilthorpe reflects on the firm’s rapid growth and development.
“Three years ago Alan and I set out to build a commercial law firm providing a highly distinctive service, offering more effective support and better value to commercial clients than our competitors and so change the way legal services are delivered in the North East.”
The firm had a great start in 2011 and were extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to work with significant companies like Able UK, Shepherd Offshore, Vardy Group, Tharsus and Lanchester Wines from the beginning.
This year the firm was announced as North East Corporate Law Firm of the Year and has grown by 70%. It now has 10 partners with many new key appointments still to come and exciting opportunities for further development.
Ian continued: “When Alan and I wrote the business plan for the first three years I don’t think either of us envisaged that the firm would grow as fast and be able to attract the quality of clients that we now have the pleasure of working with.
We have attracted a great team and everyone at the firm appreciates that our growth and success has been completely due to the willingness of our clients to work with us and trust us to consistently deliver the service in a relevant and commercial way.”
To highlight this growth and development, Square One Law has produced the first edition of “Round Up” – a brief review of how far the firm has come since its start up, three years ago. The newsletter sets out examples of some of the clients the firm has worked for and shows the scale and range of the projects it has been involved in.
