The article reports on the 4.5% increase in half-year revenue at Wragge & Co. LLP in 2012 in Great Britain. Managing partner Ian Metcalfe says that the real estate practice is strong for the first six months of the financial year, with development work as key residential clients refresh their landbanks in anticipation of an increase in demand for new homes and social housing. However, he suggests the need to win more work, improve sales and drive the recovery of real estate business.
