CMS posts tiny rise as results season gathers pace

It’s effectively a flat result for CMS in terms of revenue, despite the firm having bulked up its international offering with a spate of office openings and the occasional merger. The biggie in the latter camp is of course its takeover of Scots stalwart Dundas & Wilson, although as that deal only went live last month the smaller firm’s revenue is not included in today’s results.

Already this summer we’ve seen Watson Farley & Williams increase its revenue by 14.6 per cent; Taylor Wessing’s UK PEP shoot up by 21 per cent to £657,000; and Berwin Leighton Paisner’s PEP bounce back by 35 per cent to £542,000.

Expect more results in soon as this year’s financial figures season gets into gear. In the meantime, keep track of who has reported so far with our handy financial results tracker.
