We’re 11 years old!!
Today, 16th April is our 11th birthday and we now start our 12th year of trading in Birmingham as specialist insolvency solicitors. Way back on 16 April 2007, my co-director Sukhbir Mall and I embarked on the mad journey that has been NDP solicitors. Mad, but fulfilling!
We had identified lots of people who had committed to give work to our new venture, which gave us the confidence to start a business. In common with most start-ups, we soon learned who our friends really were…and who weren’t! Fortunately, there were plenty of good friends, and we quickly got up and running.
It has Been Some Journey – ‘No Hole to Deep to Make a Difference’
From the word go, our motto was ‘No Hole to Deep to Make a Difference’, and that remains the case today. We are committed to using our experience and expertise as insolvency solicitors to deliver the results our clients need in our core areas of Director Disqualification, Insolvency Claims, Insolvency and Restructuring and Commercial Litigation.
We left our serviced office base in year 4 having purchased and renovated, from the ground up, our freehold premises in the beautiful, thriving and burgeoning St. Paul’s square area of the great city that is Birmingham.
We continue to proudly welcome clients, contacts and visitors to our base at Calcameron House, from all over the country. It has proven to be a good location choice, with the City as a whole looking forward to its future as a growing business hub as much as we are.
It’s All Down to Our Great Team
It’s been flipping hard work. Long hours, as you would expect. Would we do it again? The answer is ‘Yes, in a heartbeat!’.
There is nothing you can do without a great team behind you. In our case, the Team’s brilliance has been externally recognised too, by our peers, on three occasions in the past 3 years. We won small law firm of the year in the Birmingham Law Society Awards in 2016. That was special. We were finalists in that same category in 2017 and 2018. Blimey…!
So it’s a huge thanks to all of our team, including those who have moved on, for the enormous part they have played in NDP’s success, and not forgetting the part played by Mac the Dog, our stress relief officer. Ditto to our clients – click here to see some testimonials – introducers and professional friends. It’s been great fun.
Now…what will Year 12, and beyond, have in store? Gulp.
