One of Scotland’s largest law firms has overcome five months of lockdown to raise its annual profit by 14%.

Edinburgh-based Burness Paull saw profit of £25 million, compared with £22m in the previous 12 months. Partner payouts won’t be revealed until full accounts are filed in March.

Revenue was up by 3% to £60.5m in the 12 months to the end of July as it won business from new clients including Cala Homes, Nike and Vodafone.

The firm operates from offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen and has more than 540 staff.
