Gillespie Macandrew reports £15m turnover after double-digit growth
Independent Scottish law firm Gillespie Macandrew has reported turnover of £15 million in the year ending 28 February 2022, a double-digit increase of 12 per cent on the previous year.
Gillespie Macandrew ended its financial year in a strong position exceeding pre-pandemic revenue levels and re-establishing its annual growth trajectory of eight consecutive years prior to 2020. The firm said it experienced increased legal activity post-lockdown, particularly in property and court-related work.
The firm’s chief executive officer, Robert Graham-Campbell, said: “We have achieved another strong set of financial results, despite challenging trading conditions and periods of lockdown in the latter part of the year. This is testament to the quality of our practice together with the resilience of our staff in adapting to periods of enforced homeworking and in continuing to support and advise our clients effectively.”
Michael Shaw, Gillespie Macandrew’s newly appointed chair, added: “These excellent results reflect both the hard work and commitment of all our staff throughout the year and a period of increased transactional activity towards the end of last year in many of our market leading teams. We continue to attract high quality clients and legal work reflecting confidence in our technical ability and expertise.”
The firm said it continues to develop its sustainability programme following its latest carbon footprint measurement report and has already taken a number of steps at each of its premises to mitigate its overall environmental impact. The firm also works with clients to support their own environmental initiatives, including renewable energy projects and woodland creation.
Gillespie Macandrew has offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth and advises clients on all areas of land and rural business, private client, commercial real estate, energy, tax and disputes.
