Law firm Anderson Strathern has announced a rise in turnover and profits for the year to 31 August 2017, ahead of the firms’ Glasgow Chamber of Commerce Breakfast Briefing on 1 March.
Turnover saw a 2.5% boost to £21.5million as net profit grew 4% with profits per equity partner up 9% – boosted by major client wins, panel appointments and organic growth across its private client, commercial and public sector practice groups.
Client wins during the year included the National Library of Scotland, Avis, Glasgow Prestwick Airport, Glasgow City Council, Taylor Wimpey, BBC Alba, Carbon Futures, Loch Lomond National Park and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
Murray McCall, Anderson Strathern’s Managing Partner, said: “By investing in our people, our brand and technology, we have built a strong platform for our next phase of growth as one of Scotland’s leading independent legal firms. We have a great team at Anderson Strathern and last year’s results are testament to our collective efforts, skills and an ability to collaborate with our client base and intermediaries to achieve the best possible outcomes.”
Bruce Farquhar, Anderson Strathern’s Chair, said: “Anderson Strathern enters 2018 in a position of strength with pre-eminent offerings in private client, commercial and public sectors. The firm also displayed its entrepreneurial credentials in 2017 with the launch of Alba Claims and we are looking to build on these strengths in the year ahead.”
Fiona Killen, Partner and Head of Parliamentary & Public Law, Douglas McLachlan, Partner, Corporate and Chris McDowall, Partner, Employment, all of Anderson Strathern, will be speaking at Glasgow Chamber of Commerce’s next breakfast briefing on 1 March.
The event will focus on General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) ahead of 25 May 2018, when all data controllers and data processors will have to comply with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation.
Failure to do so could result in significant financial penalties, with a recent government-led survey outlining that nearly two-thirds of businesses and more than half of charities are unaware of these new data protection regulations.
