Bill joined what was then called Kirby Simcox when it was still quite a small local firm, soon becoming a partner.

Through various mergers and organic growth the firm, now Barcan+Kirby, is in the top 200 law firms in the UK by turnover.

At a time when Legal Aid has largely been withdrawn, and markets such as personal injury are becoming more and more competitive, Bill and his partners have continually adapted to the evolving legal services market.
