ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the West Country, England-based firm Thring Townsend which is having a turnover of £11.5 million and a total of 97 lawyers. Since the 2000 merger the firm has moved away from its private client roots and focused on commercial work. In the process, it shut its bulk mortgage and conveyancing arm in July 2003, making 75 redundancies and cutting £2m in turnover. Last year the corporate team advised on £500m worth of completed deals. It is, reportedly, winning work out of London and attracting quality fee-earners from City firms. According to firm's managing partner, Thomas Sheppard, these changes reflect the mood among many forward-thinking firms outside the City. Earlier this year Thring Townsend has claimed to have pioneered a solution to a regular problem in the personal injury insurance business.
