Success for Flint

Bondholder Flint Bishop Solicitors has announced excellent annual results after securing contracts with high-profile blue chip clients such as G4S, Panasonic, UK Mail, Autoglass and Costcutter.

Revenue has increased by 11% to £10.8m, smashing the Derby-based firm’s target for the year. This strong financial growth has been seen across both its commercial and private client offerings.

At the company’s recent annual general meeting, Senior Partner, Andrew Cochrane said agreements to provide support and legal advice for leading firms, which also include Opus Energy, Office Depot, SIG and Haven Insurance, were key to its success. The firm has also launched several new projects into the market to encourage further growth this year.

The superb financial results follow a succession of awards and national recognition for the Flint Bishop team.

The education team received a hat-trick of nominations at the Education Investor Awards and the Managing Partner Forum recognised Qamer Ghafoor alongside firms 800 times larger for his work in obtaining new clients. The Lawyer also shortlisted Flint Bishop as a regional firm of the year while the firm’s Debt Recovery arm won nationally recognised awards with the Chartered Institute of Credit Management, Credit Collections and Risk and Credit Strategy.

Qamer Ghafoor, Managing Partner for Commercial Services and Head of Litigation, said: “I am extremely pleased with our results for 2016/2017. We have seen growth across the business and our positive results are a testament to the quality of our legal offering as well as the dedication and hard work of our staff.

"Financially we are in a very strong position and we have already made several plans for further growth for each department in our new financial year which in itself has got off to a strong start”.
