Aberdein Considine has completed a £1 million expansion across Glasgow and Aberdeen but still has an “appetite for growth”, the firm has announced.

The firm’s corporate and commercial division is now housed in a new hub on Glasgow’s St Vincent Street, while the firm’s main Aberdeen office on Bon-Accord Crescent has been expanded across five buildings, making it one of the largest in the city.

Commercial property specialist Paul Jennings, who joined the firm as a Partner earlier this year, will lead the new Glasgow office, which is its second in Scotland’s largest city.

The expansion in Aberdeen has cleared the way for two smaller offices – at 413-415 Union Street and Justice House on the adjacent Justice Mill Lane – to be sold off.

Managing partner Jacqueline Law, who took up her leading role last October, said the expansion across two cities marked the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the firm.

She said: “Our growth – both in terms of geography and areas of specialism – is driven by our desire to deliver high quality legal, property and financial services across the whole of Scotland and to work tirelessly to help those who place their trust in us.

“Demand for the services we offer has been growing across the country, particularly in Glasgow. Paul Jennings joins us with an excellent reputation and a bank of clients which will allow the office to quickly establish itself.

“His arrival – and the opening of the St Vincent Street office – hugely enhances our Corporate and Commercial legal offering.”

She also said that the firm, which has a turnover of £20 million and more than 350 staff, still had an “appetite for growth” and was continuing to look at options for further expansion.

Law explained: “The Scottish economy has been on quite a journey over the past year, first with the Referendum and then the dip in oil prices, particularly in the north-east.

“However, we believe we offer a service which travels anywhere, regardless of the economic circumstances, and we are continuing to look at options for further growth.”
