Gibson Kerr doubles property team with new merger
Edinburgh law firm Gibson Kerr has announced a second merger in three months as it further underlines its intentions to develop its residential and commercial property service in the capital.
The union with Edinburgh-based Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents – following a merger with Marwicks in September – has seen Gibson Kerr more than double the size of its property team in a year.
The merger will see Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents move into the Dundas Street location, previously belonging to Marwicks, which is now the main location for Gibson Kerr’s property team.
Grange’s principal, Gregor Mair, will continue in the merged firm as a consultant solicitor and will be joined in the Dundas Street office by Scott Rasmusen, partner and head of property at Gibson Kerr, and Mike Marwick, consultant solicitor, the former principal at Marwicks.
Mr Rasmusen said: “Grange Solicitors & Estate Agents and Gibson Kerr are the perfect fit. We share a similar ethos, and a desire to provide excellent service to clients. With more than 30 years’ experience in the commercial and residential property sector, Gregor will be a real asset to the team.”
Mr Mair added: “With the capital’s property sector continuing its positive trend, I am excited to bring my expertise to Gibson Kerr with the aim of helping the business to capitalise on the opportunities for growth in the commercial and residential property markets.”
