McGovern Reid opens in Bishopbriggs

McGovern Reid has opened a new office in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow.

After having been named Criminal Law Firm of the Year at the Herald Law Awards 2022, McGovern Reid is expanding with an office that will allow the firm to service clients in the Glasgow area. In addition to its offices in Wishaw and Hamilton, it is now also based at 128 Kirkintilloch Road, Bishopbriggs.

Bobby Reid, partner, said: “We were delighted to have been recognised by the judging panel last year. We have been innovative in how we’ve developed our online presence which has helped change the profile of the instructions we receive and we’ve invested in the next generation of criminal lawyers with the firm employing more trainee solicitors than any other criminal defence firm in Lanarkshire. Our new Glasgow office is the next part of our strategy to continue to establish McGovern Reid as one of Scotland’s premier criminal defence and road traffic firms.

“Criminal defence lawyers are underappreciated and often disrespected by the government, our justice partners and even society itself – but none of that diminishes the importance of the role we play in a democratic society. A thriving and independent criminal defence profession is essential to any democracy. Once it is lost, it will never come back.”
