365 Days and Knights in Derby

It's been one year since Bondholder company Knights Professional Services opened the doors to its Derby office, and since then the law-firm has more than doubled its revenues to become a £21 million turnover company. 

The Derby office has been integral to boosting growth for the law-firm, following the recruitment of 32 professionals in the last twelve months. Knights is now on track to almost double its revenue again, by 2017. 

David Beech, CEO of Knights, said: 'Our success is a testament to the hard work of everyone who works at Knights and we have plans to grow further to become the number one regional professional services business in the UK.'

Andrew Pilkington, Office Leader of Derby, said: '“It’s been a fantastic year for everyone based here. We have significantly grown our specialist services to include experts in franchising, data protection, banking and tax and estates, as well as strengthening our existing real estate, corporate and commercial, employment and private client teams.'

The law-firm has recently secured a funding package to aide their growth.

Knights expanded into the city after meeting Marketing Derby at our Embassy Breakfast at MIPIM in March 2015.

“I’m looking forward to helping Knights grow the team and its capabilities further, develop long-standing relationships with new clients, work with more businesses across the region and help to put the city of Derby on the map.
