BDB Pitmans

BDB has merged with Pitmans to create a top 50 UK firm in terms of revenue, with a combined turnover of over £50m.

Both firms have expanded in recent years. Pitmans took over Calvert Solicitors in 2015 while the beleaguered KWM offloaded its Cambridge-based Real Estate team to BDB last year. Pitmans is the smaller firm and posted £18.8m in revenues in 2017/18 to BDB's £33.7m.

In the RollOnFriday Firm of the Year Survey 2018, BDB staff praised the firm for its work/life balance. One lawyer noted that while "pay is lower than you can get elsewhere", this was a happy trade-off for time-recording targets being lower than at other firms.
