Clough & Willis Reports Robust Growth
Bolton and Bury-based law firm Clough & Willis has reported strong growth across its key departments over the past six months when compared to the same period last year.
On analysis of the firm's half year performance when compared to the two pre-pandemic financial years, Clough and Willis’ overall net profitability has increased by 67 per cent and 138 per cent respectively and by 59 per cent when compared to 2020.
The business now is aiming to expand its fee earning team by 10 per cent by the end of this financial year.
The new appointments will be within the residential and commercial property teams and the private client department.
Lee Marston, managing partner at Clough & Willis, said: “Covid has affected almost every business and we too suffered a drop in demand as the ‘new normal’ set in last year.
"However, 2021 has proven to be strong for us as these results clearly demonstrate. The stamp duty holiday played a significant part in the surge in demand for our residential conveyancing services and even though that has now come to an end the team is still incredibly busy and things aren’t showing signs of slowing down. There is clearly a continuing confidence in what appears to be a robust market.
Marston added: "The private client department also remains very active as a people continue to want to get their affairs in order because of Covid. As a result, we have recently recruited a new person to our fee earning staff. "
