- Legal and professional services group Ince said profit trebled in the first half of the year as the acquisition of the Ince overseas entities boosted growth.

For the six months ended 30 September 2019, pre-tax profit rose to £10.7m from £3.5m on-year and revenue increased 125% to £45.3m.

The first-half results were well ahead of last year, driven by the 'first time consolidation of the Ince overseas entities in the half year,' the company said.

Gordon Dadds and London counterpart Ince UK merged earlier this year.
