Edinburgh-based law firm adds residential letting to its long list of expertise with acquisition of Coulters Letting
Gilson Gray has revealed fuller details of its acquisition of Coulters Letting which has allowed the firm to instantly add an impressive residential letting capability to its property services operation.
The addition of Edinburgh-based Coulters Lettings will see eight staff, including the transfer of founders Sam Paulo and Marcus Di Rollo as Legal Directors, take residency at Gilson Gray’s newly opened office suite at No 6 Rutland Square.
The deal will also provide Gilson Gray Property Services with a letting portfolio of around 380 properties.
Sam Paulo, said: “This is a really fantastic opportunity for us to drive further development.
“Gilson Gray is a dynamic, award-winning firm which has grown significantly in the last five years.

“Sam and Marcus are well-known experts in their field so we’re delighted to have them come on board with their talented pool of staff.
“This is a significant step forward in our drive to become Scotland’s leading full-service property firm.
“In a short space of time, we have completed this Coulters deal, acquired a full conveyancing team, opened a new property shop in North Berwick – and our ambition has not ended yet.”
