Gilson Gray Hit the Press with Big Numbers, Big Acquisitions and Big Ambitions

15 SEP The Scotsman PG30 CROP With BlurGilson Gray‘s announcement of its staggering first year growth figures, along with the ambitious acquisition of the entire Commercial Dispute Resolution Team from Morisons LLP has made big news across national, business and legal news sites, with help from our Edinburgh PR agency.15 SEP Herald Scotland PG23 CROP With Blur

As Scotland’s fastest growing new law firm, having launched in March last year simultaneously in Glasgow and Edinburgh, the figures cap what has been an impressive year of expansion, resulting in multiple award wins.

The media were enthusiastic when it came to the ambitions of the young firm, especially in its bold swoop for the Morisons’ Team.

Joining Gilson Gray, is Alex Garioch formerly Head of Litigation at Morisons and who brings with him the entire Morisons’ Commercial Dispute Resolution Team.

Another distinguished name to join the firm is Rosie Walker, Partner, who does so just days after acting for Alistair Carmichael MP in Scotland’s first Election Trial for 50 years, making Scottish legal history when broadcast live across the UK in a British television first.

Keith Anderson also joins Gilson Gray from Morisons, as an Associate in the Insolvency Team.  Keith has had a number of high profile instructions in recent history including being lead solicitor to BDO prior to, and during, the successful 12 month administration of Heart of Midlothian football club. He was also in-house legal counsel (on secondment) for Rangers Football plc.

With help of our award winning PR agency in Edinburgh, Gilson Gray secured some impressive coverage. Featuring in both The Scotsman and Herald business pages – both in page leads in print and online – ensured the news would grab the attention of a great number of Scotland’s business leaders.

With further business coverage in the Scottish Business News Network and Daily Business Group our coverage left no stone unturned.
