Big cases fail to halt BLG’s turnover blues

Barlow Lyde & Gilbert (BLG) is bracing itself for a drop in turnover, despite involvement in high-profile cases such as Equitable Life. Preliminary results for the past financial year showed that income was down by 2 per cent, meaning revenue dipped to around £78m after hitting £80m in 2005. Average profit per equity partner is likely to remain static at around £380,000.
