Law At Work (LAW) has made two strategic hires as it celebrates record success in the first half of its financial year.
Revenues are up 30 per cent on the same period last year with growth coming from the acquisition of new clients, including Border Biscuits and Shetland Arts Trust, as well as increased demand for health & safety support as well as employment law mainly due to the changes around employment tribunals fees.
The HR At Work team, boosted by the acquisition of Square Circle HR in 2016, has expanded to include senior HR consultant, Lynn Lavelle, who has 15 years’ experience as an HR advisor, and has previously worked in Royal Bank of Scotland’s mentor division.
The second strategic hire, Michael Moran, joined Safety At Work, the health & safety arm of the business, as manager in January 2018 after a period with one of the UK’s largest fixed-fee consultancy firms, Peninsula Business Services.
Magnus Swanson, chairman of Law At Work, said: “Our growing teams have been extremely busy and we have been recruiting in all three service areas. It is exciting to see our investment in quality staff and IT paying dividends and our revenues of £1.48m for the first half of the new financial period are up 30 per cent on the previous year.
“Clients have responded well to the wealth of resources and expertise available to them, and many of our long-term clients have signed up for further five-years contracts.
“2018 is on course to be one of our most successful years yet and our teams are motivated to continue building upon this momentum.”
