Legal Business Top 100 results highlight Kingsley Napley's investment in its future

1 November 2021

The results of the Legal Business Top 100 show how the firm is investing in its future, with diversity at its heart.


The latest results have been released, with Kingsley Napley positioned at 76th in the table, but also noted by Legal Business as being one of a small number of London firms that are known for packing a punch that belies their size. The report states that Kingsley Napley is one of the strongest disputes firms in the country.

In their analysis of the results, Legal Business Top 100 noted managing partner Linda Woolley’s successful tenure as managing partner, with the firm seeing 180% growth in fee income under her management. Linda was further highlighted as shortlisted nominee for Managing Partner of the Year at the Legal Business Awards. The analysis also considered the firm’s continued investment during the pandemic; for example, the addition of nearly 20 new partners over the last year, combined with the move to new, high-spec offices, and a concerted investment into technology. These measures of growth reflect an improved experience for clients, as well as laying the foundation for future growth and successes.

The firm shone, notably, in the analysis of Diversity and Inclusion, being one of 5 firms in the Top 100 with the strongest gender diversity statistics. The firm has 43% female equity partners and the second highest percentage of female lawyers overall at 62%.  Kingsley Napley has made achieving growth through greater diversity a key commitment and has a number of thriving D&I groups.

Senior Partner Stephen Parkinson said of the results:

“Despite the challenging conditions last year, the firm has invested in growth, achieving a major move to a new office, investing heavily in IT, and growing the partnership from 55 to 72.  These investments have positioned us well for the future and we are interested in looking for new opportunities to expand and grow our business.”
