A law firm in Glasgow’s Southside is expanding as it acquires a long-established practice in the city.

MacDonald Lynch, based in Mount Florida, has announced the acquisition of Archer Coyle, a family firm of solicitors located in the Muirend area of the city.

MacDonald Lynch was established in 2021 by Elaine MacDonald, who previously worked at Austin Lafferty Ltd. She left the Newton Mearns based firm to establish her own venture, acquiring the well-respected practice of Lynch and Co., subsequently expanded and rebranded as MacDonald Lynch.

Led by partners Elaine MacDonald, Colin Carr and Robert Telfer, the firm provides a range of legal services including residential and commercial conveyancing, wills, estates, power of attorney and family law.

Liz Coyle and Gordon Dangerfield, founding partners at Archer Coyle, will join MacDonald Lynch as consultants and their existing employee will transfer to the new operation.

Senior partner Elaine MacDonald said: “We are delighted to welcome Archer Coyle into the MacDonald Lynch group. This acquisition represents a significant milestone for our firm as we continue to grow and establish ourselves as a trusted legal partner in Glasgow and beyond. We are excited to combine our expertise with the wealth of experience that Liz Coyle, Gordon Dangerfield and their team bring to the table. Together, we are committed to delivering exceptional service and achieving the best outcomes for our clients.”

Ms Coyle added: “We believe that MacDonald Lynch is the perfect fit to take over our practice. Elaine and her team have already built a strong reputation in the legal community, and we are certain that our clients will be in good hands. We look forward to working closely with the MacDonald Lynch team and providing a seamless transition for our valued clients.”
