Jones Lang LaSalle profits surge

Property giant Jones Lang LaSalle last night unveiled a 24 per cent jump in revenues to $845m (£515m), giving it a net income of $44m for the three months to the end of June. The New York-listed firm, one of the agents for the Shard tower, said net income would have been $50m were it not for costs linked to its recent purchase of rival King Sturge.
