Cheltenham and South West law firm Lodders has unveiled plans for the biggest ever recruitment drive in its 230-year history, to grow its workforce by more than 25 per cent, taking total staff number across its regional office network to 200 people. 

At its Cheltenham office on Montpelier Parade, the firm is set to add 10 solicitors to the existing 20-strong team that includes four partners and five solicitors. 

Lodders’ managing partner Paul Mourton says growing the team is central to the firm’s ongoing expansion plans: “The firm is in a really strong place. We have had an incredible 12 months, despite the challenges of Covid, with record-breaking revenue growth, new clients across the board, and some of the firm’s most high-profile, high-value instructions that have seen our teams working with some of the region’s biggest companies across a range of industries and sectors,” he says.   

“Lodders is embracing the changes to the legal services landscape brought about by the pandemic,” Paul added.
