“Over the past 12 months, Arnold Thomas & Becker has seen new clients increase by 20 per cent, and we have also seen similar positive growth of revenue and staff numbers. FY23’s outstanding results have meant that our firm has seen new clients increase by 90 per cent over a three-year period. This is a reflection of the hard work, expertise and dedication of all of our people.

“We are so pleased to see that more and more people are choosing Arnold Thomas & Becker to represent them in their legal matters and that more people are choosing to join us and work with our firm.”

“I welcome each new employee and congratulate our newly promoted people on this significant milestone in their career. We look forward to seeing each person continue to thrive in our workplace.

“Our strong results are a result of the contributions of all our people, so we hope to continue to give back by providing improved benefits, opportunities and promoting a great workplace. Over the past three years, we have increased our staff by more than 90 per cent and created new roles across the organisation. This continued investment in people has had such a positive impact on our organisation and has assisted us to build our practice into a market-leading position,” he added.

“It’s been another rewarding year, and we are excited to celebrate the achievements of our people and the results we consistently provide to more and more clients. We are energised by the outcomes we have achieved, and by continuing our strong focus on investing in our people and in future growth, I have every confidence these outstanding performance results will continue.”
