Fieldfisher Birmingham delivers strong financial results with 16% revenue growth in 2023/2024


Fieldfisher Birmingham has announced its results for the financial year 2023 / 2024, posting a revenue increase of 16% year-on-year, making Birmingham the fastest growing Fieldfisher office in the UK.

The Birmingham office has grown steadily since Fieldfisher opened its Midlands hub in 2016 and this year’s strong financial results are in line with the impressive performance of the wider European law firm.

Fieldfisher as a firm is celebrating its eleventh consecutive year of revenue growth to £359 million - up 10% on the previous financial year - with double-digit revenue growth delivered by the firm’s Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Financial Markets and Products, Personal Injury and Medical Negligence, Regulatory and Tax practices. 

In the UK, the firm recorded a 14% revenue growth, with the Birmingham office leading at 16%, alongside Manchester (14%) and London (14%). A mix of local and international work, led by the regional teams, continues to be a successful formula for the UK’s growth agenda.

Underpinning the growth strategy is an ongoing investment in bringing new talent to the firm. In Birmingham, this includes the recent appointments of Anna Youngs as Practice Development Director and Employment Judge, and Rhona Azir as Head of Immigration.

Fieldfisher Birmingham’s Office Leader, Ranjit Dhindsa, commented:

“We are delighted with our financial results this year, and are proud to be the fastest growing Fieldfisher office in the UK. This is reflective of the team’s hard work and dedication, and their unwavering commitment to delivering first-class legal services to our expanding client base.

“Our positive financial results reflect our market-leading expertise, as well as our professional and collaborative approach which enables every department to provide exceptional client service and drive forward future growth. With the combination of our local support and knowledge, backed by Fieldfisher’s international network of legal experts, we offer a unique proposition that is delivering results for our clients across every sector.

“Looking ahead, I’m excited to see continued expansion in the Birmingham office to support our ambitious plans for growth, which will be further strengthened by our upcoming move to the city centre in 2025, allowing us to better serve our existing client base in the region, across the UK and internationally, and build new networks and partnerships.
