UK specialist law firm DWF has expanded its practice into Scotland through a merger with commercial law firm Biggart Baillie.

The deal is the third in six months following DWF’s mergers with Buller Jeffries in the Midlands and Crutes in the North East, and reflects an ambitious regional growth strategy, according the firm’s managing partner.

Biggart Baillie, which has offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, shares expertise in several sectors with DWF including as real estate, retail and energy and infrastructure.

There are several differing sectors within each firm, which will result in a wider range of services and products and clients, according to DWF which also operates a Birmingham-based asset finance division.

Andrew Leaitherland, managing partner at DWF, said: “We have ambitious growth plans and are always looking for ways to enhance our offering for clients and strengthen our UK-wide presence.

“Similarly, Biggart Baillie was keen to continue to expand and provide increased services for its growing client base outside of Scotland.”

Alasdair Peacock at Biggart Baillie commented: “Competition is fierce and this merger will enhance our ability to continue to compete at the top end of the market on quality and sector expertise.

“The cultural fit is strong and our clients operating in Scotland and England will benefit from increased strength in depth, and also geographical coverage.”
