Adrian Biles featured in The Lawyer’s Hot 100
Our managing partner, Adrian Biles, has been featured by industry magazine The Lawyer in its annual ‘Hot 100’ publication. The ‘Hot 100’ is a Who’s Who of people who have made a difference to the legal world over the past 12 months. Adrian features in the Management section. A copy of the article is below.
“Managing partner Adrian Biles is on a mission to transform what was once a sleepy West End private client boutique into a £100m multi-disciplinary legal market giant with a law firm at its core.
And with the M&A deal-doer Biles at its helm, that rapid transformation will come sooner than you might think. Biles has so far overseen three London deals that have catapulted Gordon Dadds into the UK top 100, including the takeovers of Davenport Lyons and Jeffrey Green Russell. This year, don’t bet against seeing more deals as the firm takes full advantage of the more relaxed regulatory environment for investment into law firms.
Biles, once a lawyer at legacy Theodore Goddard, modestly claims to be merely the man who builds the “foundations and plumbing” – or in other words, creates the environment that enables the firm's fee earners to thrive. Some plumber.”
