Browne Jacobson re-appoints Managing Partner for third term

28 January 2015

Browne Jacobson's Managing Partner Iain Blatherwick has been unanimously re-appointed for a further three years by the firms 96-strong partnership, as of 1st May 2015.

Browne Jacobson has seen unprecedented growth since Iain took over the strategic direction and development of the firm from Brian Smith in May 2009. During his stewardship he has steered the firm towards a record breaking turnover of £50.2m as well as overseeing the opening of new offices in Manchester and Exeter and, more recently, the relocation of its London office to 6 Bevis Marks. He has also spearheaded the firms successful Lexcel re-accreditation and a three star exceptional client service rating from Investors in Customers, making Browne Jacobson the first UK law firm to achieve the standard.

During his tenure the firm has also demonstrated significant investment in infrastructure and growth across all areas of the business. Overall headcount has increased by more than fifty per cent since his appointment to over 800 strong across its five office network; the firm has also successfully re-tendered to many of its biggest clients as well as adding an impressive list of both new public and private sector clients to its growing portfolio which in the last eighteen months has included Morrisons, The Trustee of the liquidation of Bernard L Madoff Investment Securities LLC, The Independent Parliamentary Standards Association, NHS England and The Crown Commercial Service, amongst others.

Derek Bambury, Senior Partner, commented:

"Browne Jacobson has been transformed under Iains strong leadership. Whilst there are many people who have contributed to that success it is fair to say that Iain has been one of the prominent forces behind the consistent and highly successful growth realised by the firm. We are very lucky that someone of Iains skill, wisdom and tenacity is at the helm to take us forward as we aim to continue to grow and strengthen the business over the next three years."

Iain Blatherwick added:

"I am very grateful to receive the partnerships full support for another term. The firms successes to date could have not been achieved without the incredible hard work of our people and continued support of our clients. I am looking forward to working with all my colleagues to continue to deliver the firms vision."
