This is very encouraging for MI who has enjoyed significant growth in recent years, with 11 new firms joining in 2011, 16 new firms joining in 2010 and 7 new firms in 2009. As a result, 32% of member firms have been members for 3 years or less.
As well as new high profile, sizeable firms joining the association, many existing member firms have achieved impressive growth from increased international business, mergers and acquiring new offices. Whilst MI is proud of this growth, the association’s key focus remains on quality not quantity, of new and existing firms.
MI has a number of priorities to further develop representation in key markets and it looks forward to announcing further new members throughout 2012.
