Revenue rises at law firm
Gillespie Macandrew sees growth for seventh year
With an increase in revenue of 8.3% to £13m for the year ended 28 February 2019, the firm’s year end cash position rose to £1.3m, against £1m in 2018.
During the year the firm opened an office in Glasgow and announced partner promotions Chris Gibson and Lianne Lodge.
Chief executive Robert Graham-Campbell (pictured) said: “We have delivered a solid set of financial results, notwithstanding a challenging political environment and I am pleased to see such positive results from our investment in productivity initiatives during the year.
“We remain focused on our four core areas of expertise: Land & Rural Business; Energy; Private Client & Tax; and Commercial Real Estate.”
Chairman Fiona Morton commented: “Throughout 2018 and 2019 we made significant progress, as we look continually at how we can invest to improve our business to benefit our clients. These results underpin the strength of the firm and its strategy for growth, and demonstrates our continued progression.”
Gillespie Macandrew’s CSR programme this year continued its long-standing support of three charity partners: Children in Scotland; the Rock Trust; and Rossie Young People’s Trust. These charities benefited from a combination of volunteer days by staff, partnering to host training events, or providing pro-bono legal advice, as well as sharing in a £30,000 financial donation from the profits of the firm.
