Pinsent Masons has announced half-year results of £105 million, a 6 per cent increase on revenue figures for last year.
“While it is still a difficult economic environment, we have made a good start to the year,” said managing partner David Ryan.
Commenting on future potential growth, he says “We are under no illusions that the next six months will be difficult, but we are well placed to continue to grow.”
