Scottish law firms RSB macdonald and Lindsays have announced they are to merge in July.
The combined firm will be known as RSB Lindsays in Tayside, and continue to operate in Dundee from offices in the city centre and West End.
The five partners from RSB macdonald will join the merged company as partners, bringing the total number to 38. The firm hopes the increased numbers will allow them to offer clients a wider range of services for personal, family or business affairs.
Alasdair Cummings, Managing Partner of Lindsays, said: “We are delighted with the merger. It is a perfect fit, as both firms share the same core values, our personal approach and focus on delivering an excellent service to clients.
“RSB macdonald is a well-established firm with an excellent reputation, in particular in residential property, family law and the services it offers to individuals and families. The addition of their clients and people will further strengthen our own teams and allow us to continue growing our business in this region.
“I believe that the historical synergy is also fitting given that Lindsays celebrates its 200th anniversary this year and is merging with another long-standing firm that can trace it roots back to the 1880s.”
Derek Duncan, Partner at RSB macdonald, said: “This is an extremely exciting time for us. We believe the merger will bring further benefits to our clients through access to additional areas of expertise such as employment law, licensing, and corporate and commercial advice for businesses throughout Tayside.”
Lesley Macdonald, Partner at RSB macdonald added: “Our firms have long-standing connections and a very similar approach to business. We are looking forward to working with our new colleagues.”
