Balfour & Manson hooks up with GW Tait

Edinburgh firm Balfour & Manson has bolstered its private client practice by merging with GW Tait & Sons. The move will see two GW Tait partners, George Tait and Allen Kerr, join the partnership, along with three associates and the majority of the firm’s staff. The 18-partner firm has expanded significantly this year with the acquisition in May of a substantial part of the personal injury practice of Aberdeen firm Burnside Kemp Fraser and the opening of an Aberdeen office, its first outside Edinburgh.
