Clyde & Co’s turnover jumped 17 per cent in the first six months of the 2016/17 financial year from £192m to £224m.
The figures take into account the firm’s summer tie-up with Miami-based Thornton Davis Fein, as well as its Scottish merger with Simpson & Marwick last year. Eliminating the impact of these and allowing for currency movements, growth was still a solid 10 per cent.
