The firm, which is built on a commitment to the promotion of social justice and making a positive difference to society, has also revealed an increase in profit from £2.3m in 2011 to £3.7m in 2012.

Romaine Thompson, senior partner, comments: “This increase is as a result of a significant amount of hard work by our staff and partners.  The market for legal services remains challenging but we believe that our relentless focus on our key areas of strength, which in turn reflect our passions, separates us out from the crowd and will bring continued success in the future. We are now recognised as a leading voice in areas such as social housing, health and social care and the wider public and charity sectors.”

“Over the next financial year we’ll be investing in people and IT to ensure that we can continue to deliver for our clients and the communities in which they operate.”

Anthony Collins Solicitors is hoping to create 18 new roles over the next 12 months.
