Significant milestones celebrated by Altrincham’s MLP Law

Altrincham’s award-winning MLP Law is celebrating two significant milestones – its 35th anniversary and 10 years under the ownership of managing partner Stephen Attree.

As the only law firm to be a member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter to date, MLP Law is leading the way under Stephen (pictured), who acquired the firm in 2014.

With a determination to transform the direction of MLP Law and its operations, Stephen has achieved a great deal, notably developing a team of legal experts and creating a “law firm with a genuine difference”.

During the last decade, Stephen has grown the business significantly, opening an office in Lymm in 2017 following the acquisition of WH Lill & Co offices in Leeds and Manchester followed in 2021 and 2022 respectively, with the ultimate aim of becoming the leading provider of legal services in the North West.

In the last year, the firm has handled 1,718 client matters. Profits are up and continue to increase year on year, with MLP Law reporting a turnover of £2m in 2022 and £2.3m in 2023. This year the forecast turnover is £2.5m.

The firm’s team has also grown, with more than 30 professionals now employed servicing the core areas of the business and delivering the firm’s ethos of enhancing the client journey by investing in the client’s experience.

Stephen said: “I grew up with an entrepreneurial spirit, investing my savings in shares as a teenager and maintaining an interest in business alongside law.  When I was presented with the opportunity to acquire MLP Law I seized the chance to merge my legal expertise with my passion for business ownership.

“I had clear plans for the direction of the firm and wanted to implement a fresh approach to practising law, with clients at the forefront.  For me, it has always been about the client; how best I serve them and not just the law, but by always doing the right thing, both delivering results and exceeding expectations.

“We will continue to work on reducing carbon emissions, with the ultimate aim of achieving net zero.  Further growth is in the pipeline too, from enhancing the marketing team and expanding the corporate, commercial and real estate teams to internal development with organic progression a real focus.  And of course we want to continue to attract new clients, establishing long-standing working relationships with them.”
