- Legal and professional services group Gateley touted a strong first half of the year, with revenue expected to rise to at least £51m from £46m on-year.

The growth was built upon a broadening and deepening of the group's service lines and the expansion in the average number of fee earners to 673, an increase of 10.3% since the full year-end and 21.9% since the prior half year-end in October 2018. 'Despite the uncertainty around Brexit, which may continue to impact investor and client sentiment in the short-term, we remain confident that the business is well positioned to deliver a strong performance for the full year, in line with market expectations,' the company said.
