PwC boosts legal revenues to £70m as accountancy giant continues push into law

Big Four firm's push into law continues on back of integration of legal team into wider firm

PwC’s legal operations brought in about £70m in UK revenues during the 2017-18 financial year – a figure that would have put it only just outside the UK top 50, based on last year’s rankings.

The Big Four accounting firm – which received an Alternative Business Structure (ABS) licence in 2014, enabling it to integrate its legal arm into the wider business – now has about 350 fee earners in the UK, offering advice in areas including cybersecurity and data protection, corporate reorganisations, disputes, employment, immigration, M&A, pensions and technology.
