LAW firm Pinsent Masons yesterday announced a half-year turnover figure of £146m, a four per cent increase on the same period last year.

Pinsents, which earlier this year secured a tie-up with Scottish firm McGrigors, also said it had hired corporate finance specialist Jonathan Beastall from rival Clifford Chance. Stripping out revenues from McGrigors, the turnover figures was £105m – up six per cent from last year.

“I anticipate that our enhanced reach and capability will put us in good stead for the second half of the year,” said managing partner David Ryan.
