Audited profit figures released by DLA show a15 per cent hike in the firms turnover to £234m for the last financial year, with 21.1 per cent of the firms fee income being distributed as equity partner profits. However, profits per partner (PPP) remained relatively static at £460,000, an increase of just 2 per cent from last year.
