Law firms merge as Mitchells Roberton
Adie Hunter will close its office in Newton Place and all but one of the seven staff will move to the Mitchells Roberton offices in North Hanover Street. Partners David Adie (pictured right) and Graeme Hunter will join as consultants and the business will trade as Mitchells Roberton.
Donald Reid (pictured left), partner and chairman at Mitchells Roberton, said: “There are strong similarities between our firms, but we are not identical and will have much expertise to offer each other. We will have to work hard, but it will be fun as well.
“This merger will help us all to adapt and have greater resources.”
Mr Hunter said: “David and I are very comfortable about bringing our clients into the Mitchells Roberton stable. As a firm, they have the same outlook as us and they think the same way.
“We also have had a long-standing professional relationship with Mitchells Roberton and have many good contacts within the team. Donald Reid, in particular, has always been generous with advice when we have faced particularly difficult legal issues.”
Adie Hunter’s consultant Barry Pottle is joining another firm.
