Regional firm Cripps has today announced what it says are record annual trading results.  In the year to 30 April, net profit rose 2% to £7.3m on income 9% higher at £28.1m.

The top-100 firm, which has offices in Kent and London, said it would not release profit per equity partner figures until after the 2015/16 accounts have been audited.

Managing partner Gavin Tyler (pictured) said: ’To be able to announce these record results is a great achievement, particularly as we had set ourselves some fairly ambitious targets.’

The firm said it has continued to increase its profile both nationally and internationally and with an increasing number of clients based outside the UK. Cripps joined global network MarcAlliance in 2015 as its England and Wales representative.

Cripps has offices in Tunbridge Wells, London, Kings Hill and Sandwich.
