JLF is set to defy analysts’ expectations during the first 12-months of trading on strong performance from its mergers and acquisitions lawyers.
The firm recorded over 80 completed deals across its Corporate and Commercial teams in Q3 and Q4 of 2020.
Nick Wilson, director of auditors Robson Laidler said: “It is very impressive to see a business launch during the middle of a pandemic and get off to a flying start, achieving results not often seen. Clients have clearly welcomed a new approach to legal services and it is great to see such impressive results being generated so soon.”
Jabad Jaigirdar, Senior Partner and M&A specialist, said: “We are delighted that clients are choosing JLF to help navigate challenging market conditions and as a result we have achieved strong results in our first half-year of trading. Our pipeline for this year remains very strong and we look forward to continuing to support our clients and delivering more completed deals in 2021.”
JLF has recently recruited a senior lawyer and a paralegal to help service demand and is actively recruiting for more senior and junior positions.
