Last week (23 June) The Lawyer reported that 7 Bedford Row (7BR) had witnessed a drop in turnover of 9.7 per cent, down from £15.5m in 2006-07 to £14m in 2007-08. In fact, the figure provided by the set was not like-for-like with the previous year’s figure, as it did not include VAT. Taking VAT into account, 7BR’s turnover in the last financial year was £15.9m – an increase of 4 per cent. The set also saw a small increase of O.4 per cent in criminal fees.
