Managing partner win for Stephensons

Andrew Welch

Andrew Welch, managing partner of national law firm Stephensons Solicitors LLP, has been named the Managing Partner of the Year at this year’s 360 Legal Conference and Awards.

Andrew was awarded the title by the 360 Legal Group, at its annual dinner on Thursday October 2nd which took place at Chesford Grange in Warwickshire.

The judges were looking for evidence of a clear vision and plan that is understood and adopted throughout the firm. The winner needed to demonstrate good management principles and innovative thinking when it came to getting the most out of their team.

The judges said: “Our winner, who this year celebrates his 20th year at his firm, had forsaken his career as a successful Personal Injury lawyer to become his firm's full-time managing partner. Under his stewardship the firm's turnover has risen from £12.6 million in 2008 to £17.7 million in 2013/2014 while profits have increased by 86% over that same period.

“The last couple of years have seen substantial office expansion both in the firm's Lancashire heartland and in its London presence and staff numbers have increased from 380 to 460 in the last year.”

Andrew Welch said: “I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of Stephensons. The firm has undergone exceptional growth over the last 12 months and has responded to the challenges faced by law firms in a determined manner.”
