Accuracy achieved great things in 2021. Revenues climbed to €125m; headcount increased to 480 worldwide; and our firm placed consistently highly in professional rankings, including Who’s Who Legal, Leaders League and Great Place to Work®. We welcomed seven new partners into the fold during the year through both internal promotion and external recruitment. They represent seven complementary profiles, spread across four of our eighteen global offices, and add to our advanced expertise in our business domains.
Our teams remained as present and active as ever in our key markets. Transactions take the spotlight here, with a booming market in 2021, leading to a number of strategic projects with significant involvement from Accuracy teams. In this report, we look at the economic environment that drove this increase in the transactions market, as well as a sample of our work in this area throughout the year.
Being at the forefront of our markets has always been one of our strengths. In 2021, we launched our quarterly Accuracy Talks Straight newsletter, in which we examine a spectrum of business subjects, from innovation and technology to economics and corporate philosophy. Our industry insights from each edition thus far are the subject of a special focus later in the report.
Our ambition is to be a responsible corporate citizen on all fronts. We continue to assist our long-term social partners, and we are developing new partnerships with organisations whose values and principles fully align with our own.
The year 2022 looks set to be just as active as 2021, with numerous subjects already on the table. As new leaves continue to turn and momentum continues to rise, we will remain by our clients’ sides, delivering effective and bespoke advice from our top-level teams during strategic and critical phases.
