Bumper haul of headlines for exciting new law firm which works with legal PR partners

A montage of successful launch PR coverage for new law firm Gilson Gray

EXCITING new law firm Gilson Gray saw its Scottish launch enjoy a fabulous welcome in the media. 

While legal companies come and go, the creation of Gilson Gray caught the imagination of the media, including the popular press, the quality press, leading business publications, legal titles and others.

That success was down to Gilson Gray’s trusted partnership with the legal PR experts at Holyrood PR. We elevated the story of the new firm’s launch by revealing it was believed to be the biggest launch of a full-service legal firm in Scotland for 100 years.

That powerful story also helped position the two founders, lawyer Glen Gilson and property expert Matthew Gray, as ambitious entrepreneurs worth keeping an eye on.

Foremost among the coverage was a glowing Sunday newspaper story. highlights of the headlines included:

Gilson Gray launched following nearly a year of careful planning. The senior figures are Glen Gilson, one of the leading private client lawyers in Scotland and previously part of the senior management team at HBJ Gateley, and Matthew Gray, former head Head of Property and Legal Services and member of the Managing Board at Pagan Osborne.

The pair carried out painstaking negotiations to recruit an expert team of nine solicitor partners and four other senior executives to head and develop the business’s legal, property and financial services divisions.

They promise that the new firm will be fresh and modern and will shake up the stuffy image which often bedevils the legal profession.
