SSQ ranks for the first time on The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200
Shilton Sharpe Quarry (SSQ), the leading international legal search and recruitment consultancy, is pleased to announce it has been ranked in this year’s The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200.
SSQ has been ranked 105th on the list of businesses. The rankings are based on the overall growth and international sales of privately owned British businesses across all sectors. The criteria for qualification are extensive and focus very much on international sales growth, requiring businesses to have at least 5% of their total sales coming from outside the UK. The table also recognises the speed at which businesses have grown, requiring the accounts to show year on year growth of international sales.
SSQ is a truly international business, operating currently from 12 offices around the world. The business is the only dedicated legal search consultancy to be included in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 and this strongly reinforces SSQ’s unique selling point as an international supplier.
Speaking about the accolade, SSQ’s Chief Executive, Nick Shilton said:
“I am immensely proud of the growth that SSQ has achieved over the last few years and to be recognised as a leader in international sales is a great success. We have worked hard and heavily invested in all of our global offices, allowing them to grow and develop in their own right. Our strategy has always been to expand our business along the same geographic lines as our clients and we will continue to grow in the locations where we already have offices, as well as further extending our network into new markets over the coming years.”
