Law firm acquires office
Gilson Gray extends reach with Lindsays deal
Gilson Gray has acquired the North Berwick offices of law firm Lindsays. Partner Dorothy Kellas and the team of local staff will transfer to the new owner.
Glen Gilson, managing partner at Gilson Gray, said: “Expanding into East Lothian is an exciting development and reflects our desire and ability to serve both business and local communities in Scotland.
“East Lothian is an important market and indeed represents the fastest growing population area in the country over the next decade. We are delighted to be part of that picture.”
Alastair Cummings, managing partner at Lindsays, said: “Following a firm-wide strategic review we decided to leave the local market and will continue to provide and develop our services through our city offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Gilson Gray and we wish the North Berwick team all the best for the future.”
Ms Kellas said: “I am delighted to be joining Gilson Gray. Given that the team stays the same, there will be an element of ‘business as usual’, but there will also be positive changes arising from Gilson Gray’s investment.”
Gilson Gray opened as the largest full service law firm launch in Scotland in 2014.
