- Gateley anticipates revenues in the second half will deliver a group performance for the full year in line with market expectations.

The company said the board was pleased with the performance of the business in the first six months of the financial year.

An update said: 'Activity levels have been robust and this, together with particularly strong growth in Gateley's Corporate and Property service lines, has yielded revenues up 10% over this period.

'The board generally sees activity levels remaining solid and continues to invest in the business, taking advantage of growth opportunities as they arise.

'Following similar investment last year, total staff numbers, including six further strategic lateral partner hires, have risen from 717 as at 30 April 2017 to 763 as at 31 October 2017.

'As a result, group EBITDA for the six months is in line with that achieved last year.'
