Mr McFall said: “Following a period of restructure and investment in the infrastructure of the company, we are now well positioned to move forward positively. This senior team has the drive, ethics, talent and passion to give the business a re-energised focus which will deliver both the growth we want to achieve, and the quality and attention to detail that our clients demand.”

Mr McFall added: “We will look to grow headcount by a further 20-25% this year and there is also our new office in Edinburgh which we move into over the next few months, new specialisms and new markets in the pipeline.
