Fixed-fee legal venture Riverview Law is planning to double its headcount over the next 12 months, as the new-look legal services business eyes up moves into emerging markets after a successful first year in operation. 

Riverview, which handles volume fixed-fee work through Riverview Solicitors and Riverview Chambers, launched 12 months ago with the backing of DLA Piper, which has a 21% share in Riverview’s parent company, LawVest.
