Nabarro’s turnover nudges up in first half of 2010-11

Nabarro has posted a three per cent increase in turnover for the first six months of the 2010-11 financial year.

The firm brought in £53.5m over the period, £1.5m higher than for the comparable period last year.

Managing partner Nicole Paradise said: “It’s a bit early to say what full-year results will look like, as the second half is always busier.”

Paradise highlighted growth in real estate, which she said “has come back the quickest”. She added that litigation and projects were “pretty flat”.

Paradise said the firm will be watching the impact of the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review, announced last month (20 October 2010), with close interest to see how it will pan out in the firm’s practice areas, particularly projects.

Wragge & Co yesterday announced a 15 per cent increase in turnover for the six months ending 31 October. The firm does not reveal specific revenue figures at the half-year stage, but turnover is expected to be around £54m for the period (8 November 2010).
