RESULTS MOVES HOUSE FOLLOWING STRONG YEAR
13 January 2017, Written by Paris Faint
FOLLOWING a solid year of growth and new additions to its workforce, Results Legal has upgraded its practice.
Having outgrown its previous premises in Turbot street following the hire of six new staff in 2016, the commercial litigation specialist has moved to its new location at North Quay.
Managing Director Karl Hill says the move signifies the next phase of progression for the business, as he looks towards bolstering the team in the new year.
"It's nice to have a premises that is a bit more reflective of who we are as a business today and where we see the business going," says Hill.
"The next step for us is around continuing to develop the team. We will bring on new hires, as we are very fortunate to have some very high quality client relationships with a lot of work on."
Of the staff members that joined Results in the past year, three were brought on at a solicitor level, two at an associate level and one at a senior associate level.
These new team members have a wealth of combined experience in business grants, commercial litigation and insolvency.
Hill says the growing presence of the Results Legal financial services arm has also contributed to the strong year.
"We have increased the number of clients that we have in that space, and we've been fortunate enough to also build on existing relationships we have with clients in that segment," he says.
"We took on an assignment last year with the portfolio of debt associated with people buying into the Great Southern investment schemes, which has been a significant amount of work for us both in terms of the number of files at various levels of complexity."
While the firm continues to grow, Hill is adamant that the team won't be biting off more than they can chewwhen it comes to exploring different areas of practice.
"We're not interested in being all things to all people, it's about really focusing on our segment in credit litigation," says Hill.
This year Results plans to boost its processes through technology, having heavily invested in practice management software and associated systems over the past 12 months.
