Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office opening in September hailed a return to growth and stability for the public sector-focused firm, which has posted static financials over the last five years.  Now, just two months later, managing partner Duncan Weir has revealed his intention to open a fifth office in Manchester in the next three years and has set his sights on the £80m revenue mark, more than double the firm’s current standing.

The rapid expansion needed to take Bevan Brittan from a £35m firm to one posting revenues in the £60m to £80m range in the next five years will come through taking a number of litigation team hires for its regional hubs, Weir tells The Lawyer.

“There’s no absolute timeline but certainly by five years, and probably within three years, we’ll have succeeded so well in Leeds we’ll open in Manchester,” he says.  “In Leeds, from a budgeting perspective we’re already ahead of target, but there’s room for a lot of growth. We’re not looking to acquire a lot of firms to shoot through £100m, but revenue of between £60m and £80m in the next five years is realistic providing we can find the right people.”
