The firm’s partnership has voted for him to remain in the post for a further three-year term, commencing on May 1.
The move follows a first term that saw the legal heavyweight’s revenue grow by 20 per cent in the first two years, to £82 million, while headcount increased from 645 to 744 and partner numbers rose from 96 to 107.
Chairman Christine O’Neill said: “Under Nick’s leadership Brodies has continued to grow and over the last two and a half years he has ensured that we are equipped to provide relevant legal services and the very best advice to our clients, as well as opportunities for those seeking a career in law.
“While focused on business growth and investment, Nick has approached his role as managing partner with a commitment to the success and wellbeing of our colleagues at the forefront of his mind. That commitment has been very clear, despite a challenging social, political and economic backdrop.”
