Tie-up with Grange
Gibson Kerr unveils second merger
It follows the tie-up with Marwicks in September and has seen Gibson Kerr more than double the size of its property team in a year.
The merger will see Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents move into the Dundas Street location, previously belonging to Marwicks, which is now the main location for Gibson Kerr’s property team.
Grange’s principal, Gregor Mair, will continue in the merged firm as a consultant solicitor and will be joined in the Dundas Street office by Scott Rasmusen, Partner and Head of Property at Gibson Kerr, and Mike Marwick, consultant solicitor, the former principal at Marwicks.
Scott Rasmusen said: “After the success of the initial merger with Marwicks, we had been looking to continue to grow our property department.
“Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents and Gibson Kerr are the perfect fit. We have ambitious plans to develop our property service in 2017.”
Mr Mair, who operated Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents mainly from premises in Haymarket, said: “With the capital’s property sector continuing its positive trend, I am excited to bring my expertise to Gibson Kerr with the aim of helping the business to capitalise on the opportunities for growth in the commercial and residential property markets.”
The mergers have allowed Gibson Kerr to increase its property team to seven.
Gibson Kerr, moved to its current base at India Street in 1990, although the business originally dates back to the 1940s. It was acquired by Scott and Fiona Rasmusen in 2005.
Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents was established by Gregor Mair in 2010.
