Law firm Prettys, who celebrated their 110th anniversary this year, have reported a successful year for the business across a number of service areas.

Growth was particularly strong in employment services, dispute resolution, family and estates, wills and trusts

Prettys’ employment law team had a particularly busy year, expanding their services, launching a webinar training programme and announcing a partnership with London-based immigration specialists Davidson Morris. December has seen an unprecedented volume of new instructions from a wide variety of resources. The New Year will see an announcement of an expansion of the team.

Announcements for other teams will also be forthcoming in the New Year

The firm also launched their IT and Digital Services in response to a growing demand from businesses wanting to expand their digital services with new mobile technologies and innovative online platforms.

Prettys partners and associates have also been widely recognised by the Legal 500, Chambers and Partners and Lex 100 rankings.

Specialist areas such as construction, shipping, logistics and transport as well as health and social care have also reflected on a positive year with both new and repeat clients benefiting from Prettys’ expert knowledge and advice.
