  • Really! How does this make any sense for CMS? Is it reflective of the new senior partner's wish to strngthen the Scottish practice? Very sad to see CMS go down yet another blind alley.

  • If CMS have to buy headcount and turnover, then why not a decent Corporate force? Which they still don't have in the UK.

  • Its a lot easier to snap up D&W as a whole than try to grow organically if you want to bulk-up, and despite recent difficulties they still have good people and client relationships.

    Plus given it appears to clearly be a takeover rather than a supposed merger you know that you're going to be in the driving seat.

  • I wonder if those against the Dyson Bell merger are now kicking themselves. The main reason for the downfall at Dundas & Wilson is that it was a disjointed firm and it was at odds with itself. Over 250 years in business and now this. RIP

  • well done D&W - CMS are a vastly different outfit than Eversheds. A serious law firm. Cannot really see what is in it for CMS - surely there PEP must be incompatible with D&W

  • As I previous employee at dundas I know that their real estate and construction practices in London are v strong and will definitely complement those of CMS. Not sure about the value of the other practices particularly litigation and banking. Good takeover for the first year trainees but worry for the future of the second years and also incoming trainees. I left almost a year ago and glad that I am not being swallowed up by CMS.
