James Knight, CEO and founder of Keystone said:
“The legal sector has become increasingly more competitive in recent years and, as a challenger brand, we were keen to ensure we continued to make our mark by focusing on enticing the best lawyers in the country towards our model, in order to maintain a truly client-centric service delivery. Our growth ambitions have been achieved by a rigorous recruitment programme paired with a commitment to innovation and disrupting the norm. Our inclusion in this report is a demonstration of that commitment and of us having firmly put our own stamp on the marketplace.”
