Ashurst LLPs: staff costs rise £5m as top earner takes home £1.05m
Ashurst saw a £5m increase in staff costs during 2010-11 against a 2% drop in staff count, according to the firm's limited liability partnership (LLP) accounts. The accounts, recently filed on Companies House, show staff costs rose to £127.8m last year, up from £122.3m in 2009-10. Over the same period, total legal and support staff headcount fell from 1,634 to 1,602. The firm attributed the increase in staff costs to a rise in the number of partners outside the UK treated as salaried partners under the LLP for accountancy reasons.
