Legal services firm on growth path
Vialex embarks on southern expansion
Vialex, the legal services company, today unveils the next stage of its growth ambitions, which includes plans to expand its existing client base south of the border.
The Edinburgh-based practice has doubled in size to a 30-strong team of specialists in two years on the back of a strong and growing corporate client list.
Among clients are the online retailer Atterley, the brewer Innis & Gunn, Marlow Foods (owner of Quorn), the independent distiller and blender Loch Lomond Group, the technology firm PureLiFi and data analytics company, Veropath.
Vialex, which was set up in 2010 by former Dickson Minto colleagues Keith Anderson and Keith Dinsmore, is today unveiling a new animated website www.vialex.co.uk to help with its growth plans and to promote its ‘in-house counsel’ service.
The company offers clients the equivalent of a senior in-house legal advice service across a range of disciplines and sectors without the fixed overhead and potentially narrower skillset associated with salaried staff.
Three senior members of the team driving new business are Seona Burnett (Director, Legal Counsel Service), Paul Jarman-Williams (Director, Transaction Services), and Allan Reid (Head of Legal Counsel Service).
Vialex moved into new premises in Atholl Crescent last year after out-growing its first offices.
Keith Anderson, Co-founder and Director of Vialex, said: “We have invested heavily in new systems and technology, including the new website which better outlines our proposition.
“We have an ambition to grow throughout the UK and we are actively looking at the south-east market where we have already had considerable success through word of mouth and referrals alone.”
