Firm broadens offering
Gildeas marks expansion plan with Fulton’s acquisition
The deal will enable the personal injury specialist to increase its exposure to property law. The Gildeas conveyancing practice will merge with Fulton’s, which will continue trading as a separate entity from its two customer-facing units in Mount Florida and Clarkston, Glasgow.
Financial terms have not been disclosed, but the agreement will see Gildeas expand its total workforce by 13 to 77 as it celebrates its 30th anniversary. The firm said it would continue to focus on personal injury work in Scotland and “seek further acquisition opportunities” to drive growth.
A small number of Gildeas staff, including senior solicitors, will transfer to Fulton’s as a result of the acquisition.
Gildeas director Colin Ferguson, pictured, said: “I am confident that our new business structure will enable Gildeas to focus on our core personal injury work and ensure we are well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities in this area as they arise.
“Our existing conveyancing practice has merged with a thriving business which has an experienced team at the helm and a loyal customer base.”
