Scottish law firm Lindsays expands its footprint in Glasgow

Posted: 25th September 2017

Alasdair Cummings (2) - Yes cropped & resizedLindsays has moved to new offices in central Glasgow, reflecting the growth of the award-winning law firm’s team, services and client base in Glasgow and the West of Scotland.

The new offices are at 100 Queen Street, at the heart of the city’s corporate and professional services district in the building recently recognised as the Best Refurbished and Recycled Workplace at the British Council for Offices’ regional property sector awards. The new base offers a client-friendly and professional environment for the full-service legal firm, which now has almost 60 staff in Glasgow.

Lindsays has taken the 3rd floor of the newly refurbished Art Deco building, which is close to all major transport links and convenient for clients from both Glasgow and beyond.

Alasdair Cummings, the firm’s Managing Partner says, “As a result of our growth in Glasgow, we’d outgrown our old offices in Royal Bank Place. The move to Queen Street has put us exactly where we want to be – with the space, professional facilities and location to support corporate clients, charities, families and individuals with all the legal services they need.”

Alasdair added, “Our move sees the relocation of an award-winning firm to an award-winning building. This gives us a great place to develop our team in Glasgow and we are excited about embarking on this new chapter for the firm.”

Lindsays’ growth in Glasgow has been both organic and through acquisitions. The firm acquired Brodies’ personal injury business earlier this year which strengthened the Glasgow team, and brought the number of partners based here to 11. These partners include the heads of Lindsays highly-regarded employment law, family law, and personal injury teams.

Overall the firm has grown significantly over the last five years and staff numbers have increased by 46%, expanding its full-service presence across all three of its city-centre offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee. Lindsays now has 44 partners and over 200 staff.
