A SCOTS solicitors is looking to expand its operations as it moves into a new office in the capital.

Long-established Edinburgh law firm Gibson Kerr has combined its two previous city offices to bring its operations under one roof.

A move to 6 Randolph Crescent in the capital’s West End aims to support Gibson Kerr’s 27-person team of lawyers and support staff as it manages what it calls “a surge in demand for its services.”

The company also has a premises in Glasgow’s West George Street for clients in the west of Scotland.

Gibson Kerr Partner and Head of Family Law, Fiona Rasmusen, said: “Operating from one larger office streamlines our business, as well as being necessary to accommodate a series of new appointments and our expansion strategy.

“Our family and personal law departments have continued to perform strongly through the Coronavirus period.

“We expect these two areas to continue to grow, with increasing numbers of enquiries and revenue, while our property team is busier than ever.

“The location is ideal and sits in our traditional Edinburgh heartland which has served us so well over the years.

“We are delighted to be starting 2022 with fit-for-purpose premises which underscores our ambition to build our core services and our determination to service long-term clients and introduce new clients to the firm.”

Fiona added: “Every client is important to us and by specialising in three key areas, our lawyers and support teams can focus on what is really important to each individual client.

“Many of our staff are experts in their field, and while we may be working from a new address, clients can be assured that continuity and stability is central to all our work.”

Fiona is Head of Family Law, whilst Scott is a Managing Partner.
