A series of new, high profile client wins coupled with the expansion of its team of expert lawyers has enabled Harper James Solicitors to grow its Sheffield based head office by more than 50% in the last 12 months.
During 2017, we secured new instructions from Sapphire Systems PLC, one of the UK’s leading global providers of business software, and global engineering conglomerate ThyssenKrupp Elevator UK Ltd.
This success has seen Harper James strengthen its management team in the areas of risk and compliance, business development, client services and marketing. While our head office has been relocated to a prime spot in St Mary’s Square in Sheffield.
CEO and Corporate Solicitor Toby Harper said: “It’s a really exciting time for Harper James as we continue to grow our business rapidly. I started the company in 2014 with only an assistant, and we’re now a team of 40.
“We operate a unique business model which is paying dividends for us, with our accessible Enterprise monthly service plan attracting many innovative start-ups, SMEs and professional investors. Yet at the same time we are able to attract and meet the demands of large international multi-billion pound turnover, businesses which otherwise might be instructing firms based in the City of London.
“Our success means we’ve been able to attract more lawyers from other leading firms and expand our head office-based team to support them.”
In addition to our Enterprise Plan for start-ups and SMEs, we provide an On Demand service plan specifically aimed at larger businesses with a turnover of more than £10million.
