A series of client wins has seen Scottish legal firm Anderson Strathern record an 8% rise in half-year revenue.
The firm was reappointed principal provider of legal services for Crown Estate Scotland, which is responsible for managing a range of rural, coastal, marine assets and other commercial assets across Scotland.
Other client wins during the six months to the end of February included APUC, the University of the West of Scotland, West College Scotland and Beijing Gold Solar.
The firm completed a number of bolt-on acquisitions in recent years – including Glasgow-based Jeffrey Aitken and Edinburgh-based ADLP in 2016 – and is actively considering further growth by acquisition in both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Welcoming the new set of figures, chairman Bruce Farquhar said: “We are not complacent and continue to seek out opportunities to add expertise by way of merger and acquisition if we feel we can add value to our overall client proposition.”
The new business wins also allowed Anderson Strathern to bolster its personnel.
Property specialist Iain Grieve was hired as a partner from HBJ, private client lawyer Sarah McKinlay arrived from HBJ as a consultant and Alan Simpson also came on board as a consultant to focus on the renewable energy sector.
