Inverness business acquired
Highland deal for Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie
Calum Duncan and Angus MacLeod
The Inverness branch of law firm Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie (WJM) has acquired the practice of Calum Duncan in the city.
The move comes as Calum Duncan announces his retirement. His office closed on 30 June but WJM will continue to provide legal services to his clients. WJM will also oversee the safe storage and retention of all deeds and documents currently held on their behalf.
Angus MacLeod, partner at Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie and head of the firm’s Inverness office, said: “Calum is an incredibly well-known and very well-respected lawyer throughout the Highlands and Islands.
“We’ve worked together closely over the past few months to ensure all Calum’s clients’ information and caseloads can be transferred seamlessly.”
Calum Duncan said: “I have the greatest respect for the team at WJM and have every confidence that any work entrusted to the firm by my clients will be carried out to the same high standard, and with the same attention to detail, that I have provided throughout my career.
“It has been a privilege to practice as a lawyer throughout the Highlands and Islands over the past 35 years and I hope during this time I’ve been able to make a real difference for my clients.”
The announcement follows a raft of new hires and an office expansion in WJM’s Inverness branch which saw WJM’s staff numbers rise from 18 to 25.
