Glasgow lawyers give bonuses to staff following bumper year

Glasgow-headquartered Complete Clarity Solicitors and Simplicity Legal posted annual turnover of £1.5 million in the year to May 2023, up from £1.1m on the previous year.

The firm has now delivered substantial salary increases to all staff in addition to the introduction of a £50,000 bonus pot which will ensure up to a £2,300 pay-day addition for each staff member who worked for the firm to exceed the targets set in the financial year with the incentive that more is yet to come.

Founded in 2010, Complete Clarity also owns Simplicity Legal, which it established in 2015 with the aim of filling a gap in the market for fixed fee family law work and merged with in 2017.

Billy Smith, director of Complete Clarity and Simplicity Legal, said: “The firm has been performing well in excess of expectation, driven by the culture which we have consciously developed in recent years and also by structural changes to our commercial activities.

“It all flows from a policy of creating the best possible legal environment for our staff which generates a stream of ancillary benefits, not least of which are providing excellent service for clients while optimising fee income.

“I have learned from experience not to fall into the trap of lawyers who tend to forget that they have clients, but to focus on giving advice which is firmly based on commercial and economic good sense.”
