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

the North East, and reflects an ambitious regional growth strategy,
according the firm’s managing partner.

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

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