We strongly believe in recognising our employees’ commitment and high level of performance through our ‘Employee Recognition Award’ programme. Every quarter we receive nominations across all our departments and offices from employees who have identified a particular colleague who has made a significant impact on the business through a variety of means from excellent client care to implementing a more efficient working practice. Recognition is an important aspect of our business and its vital we identify and communicate this to all our employees’.
Rix & Kay is an ambitious law firm and has seen significant growth over the last decade, more than doubling our turnover from 2.9 million in 2003 with 11 partners to over 7 million with 21 partners in 2014. We believe this is due to the strength of our client relationships and the expertise of our people. Recognised in Legal 500 and Chambers in thirteen and eight practice areas respectively, and with eleven lawyers as ‘leaders in their field’ we have substantial sector expertise. We have also gained Lexcel accreditation demonstrating our commitment to quality and compliance.
In October 2014 the Legal 500 announced Rix & Kay’s rankings which truly reflect how technically skilled, client focused and dedicated our employees are. We are now ranked in 14 areas which is an increase on last year; the new category is Insolvency and Corporate Recovery. In three categories we have increased our ranking by one tier; these consist of Family, Charities and not for profit and Sport. We have also achieved our first ever Top Tier ranking which was Sport and an additional three lawyers have been recommended. To view our results online please click here.
