Newtons celebrates 10 years in business

How time flies – on 1st June we reached our 10th anniversary from when the business started with one man and a laptop (me).

With a lot of help from many dedicated and enthusiastic people we’re now a regional law firm with 12 offices employing over 110 people, hitting £5.7m fee income per annum …. and a lot more grey hair than when I started!

I like that Newtons’ first ever client still reminds me that she was our first ever client and I look back fondly at one of our early clients that used to call us “Lawyers in the Loft”, with reference to my home office for the first year.  There was our IT guy who couldn’t type, leading to us being known as “Netwons”!  I do of course have many other happy thoughts about our various stages of growth and the people involved.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped us with our journey so far including our team (including those who are no longer with us), our clients, advisors and suppliers.

More exciting though is what we hope to achieve for the future.  Reaching the ranks of the top 200 law firms in the country has to be achievable and will be our next goal.  We’re also opening our next office this month but more news on that very shortly.
