Shulmans confirms departure of its founding partner

Jeremy Shulman is stepping down from Shulmans, the firm he founded nearly four decades ago.

Jeremy founded Shulmans in Leeds in 1981. From an initial team of three, the firm has grown considerably over the past 37 years to meet the requirements of its ever-growing client base, and last year celebrated reaching a major recruitment milestone of 200 employees.

This figure now exceeds 220 people all working from within a single-site headquarters at Wellington Place. In 2017, Shulmans achieved a record turnover of £14.85 million.

Shulmans hosted the annual Interlegal conference in Leeds in November 2017, a meeting attended by independent law firms from 40 countries around the world. Jeremy, a former president of Interlegal, has also held several prestigious posts within the city, including as former president of Leeds Law Society.

Jeremy was also involved in the Yorkshire Legal Awards for many years.

Managing partner Tim Halstead will continue to lead the firm following Jeremy’s departure at the end of the month.

Speaking of his departure, Jeremy said: “I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved at Shulmans, and of the team who deliver the highest standard of service for our clients.”

“Our success over the decades is a testament to the outstanding legal talent of our people. I look forward to seeing the firm continue to thrive over the years ahead.”
