Borders rail persuades law firm to open office

Andy DraneThe Borders rail link has proved a magnet for another investment into the region. Commercial law firm Davidson Chalmers has opened an office within the £5.2 million Galashiels Interchange.

The office will act as a regional hub for the firm, which began operating in Edinburgh in 1993 and has since grown in size to 46 staff including 11 partners.

Partner Andy Drane will run the office. He said: “We believe the new rail link is a real game changer for the central Borders which will open it up to new business opportunities.

“We are therefore delighted to be opening this new office in the Galashiels Interchange, a move which represents a natural progression to our long standing commitment to the area and which will enable us to grow our client base here.”

Scottish Borders Council leader, David Parker, said: “The Galashiels Transport Interchange is a landmark building for Borderers and visitors using the Railway, who have been equally impressed by the facility.

“I am delighted Davidson Chalmers is the first company to move into the Transport Interchange and hope to see other firms take on office space in this attractive building in the near future.”
