RWK Goodman makes new ground in UK Top 100 law firms ranking

RWK GOODMAN press release

The Lawyer’s UK 200 ranking published in October 2023 is the first to a collate a full year’s data since the merger between Royds Withy King and Goodman Derrick in May 2022 so sees the newly named RWK Goodman debuting at number 78 in the league table of UK Top 200 firms. This is the biggest ranking rise amongst any firms this year; up 18 places on Royds Withy King’s 2022 ranking.

The ranking forms part of The Lawyer’s annual UK 200 report which profiles the largest firms by revenue, and outlines recent key developments, statistical analysis and areas of strategic focus.

The Lawyer points out RWK Goodman has seen the largest percentage revenue rise in the last year (30.8 per cent) which the firm attributes to the merger with Goodman Derrick and organic growth.

Graham Street, managing partner at RWK Goodman, comments:
“Our ranking in The Lawyer’s UK 200 is a result of our stainable growth strategy we have been pursuing for a number of years. This year, the results reflect the merger and continuing investment in our people. We’ve been growing organically through exciting markets, clients and sectors – and we anticipate that to continue in future years.

“We also want to build upon and develop our culture as great place to work, a firm that recognises that people really do matter, where sustainable work/life balance is a reality not just words and where hard work and success will be recognised and rewarded by promotion and career advancement.”
