NewLaw solicitors reveals significant growth plans

Leading personal injury law firm, NewLaw solicitors, has revealed plans for major expansion over the next three years, which will see 150 jobs being created.

The fast growing Welsh law firm, one of the top 10 personal injury law firms in the UK, employing over 300 people has already begun recruiting with an extra 100 people having already joined in 2012.

The recent expansion plans are a result of the firm’s strategy to offer outsourced consumer legal services on behalf of high street companies, taking advantage of the changes taking place in the legal services market.

NewLaw, which has a £30m turnover, was established in 2004 by chief executive Helen Molyneux who was determined to set up a legal firm with a new business structure. Earlier this year, NewLaw became the first Legal Disciplinary Partnership in the UK to be licensed as an Alternative Business Structure (ABS).

Speaking about the company’s expansion plans, Helen Molyneux, said: “With plans to recruit an extra 150 members of staff over the next three years, we are currently on a recruitment drive to find the best people to join our firm. We are looking at recruiting within all departments including personal injury, private client and wills and probate, at all levels of experience. We’re also looking at offering more training contracts over the next three years, giving our graduates a great opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading law firms.

“This growth has allowed us to expand our office in Glasgow, open new offices in Bristol and Basingstoke which we’re currently recruiting for, as well as more roles at our headquarters in Cardiff. We’re looking forward to the next three years.”
