Anderson Strathern passes £15m turnover

Scottish firm Anderson Strathern has raised its turnover by 11 per cent, hitting £15.5m for 2006.

Turnover grew by £1.7m from its previous figure of £13.8m in a year that saw it open a new office in Glasgow.

Anderson Strathern chairman Robert Carr put the turnover increase down to the growth of new practice areas, such as public law and insurance litigation, and cross-selling to established clients.

“Our 10 largest clients are serviced on average by six departments each,” said Carr.

At the start of the year the Crown Estate appointed Anderson Strathern as sole legal adviser for Scotland. Other client wins include the University of Stirling and Scottish and Southern Energy.

The 38-partner firm also rebranded and moved into new Edinburgh offices last year.
