Gillespie Macandrew announce location and opening date of Glasgow office

Posted: 25th March 2015

Edinburgh headquartered law firm Gillespie Macandrew LLP will open its first office in Glasgow on Monday, 30th March, at 69 Buchanan Street. Initially the firm will have two staff  based here, with hot desk facilities available to provide a base for staff from other Gillespie Macandrew offices who are delivering additional support for clients in the West of Scotland. The firm expects to further develop its presence in the area over the coming months and beyond.

Gillespie Macandrew has seen another robust financial performance over the last year, with an unaudited fee-income figure of £9.9 million for the 2014-15 financial year, up just over 3% from the previous year.

Managing Partner Ian Turnbull states: “We’ve had a particularly strong fourth quarter in both feeing and cash recovery, building on the preceding quarters, and we have also experienced a number of significant client wins in the second half of the year. This means we are in a very sound cash position at the outset of the new financial year, during which we will complete repayment of all term funding by November 2015. We are now looking towards a significant period of growth and our new initial office in Glasgow is just the first step in this plan.”
