Scottish firm Dundas & Wilson has vowed to keep London at the centre of its growth strategy in the wake of further departures.
It is understood that three corporate partners are planning to leave the firm, including partner Simon Sale. When contacted by The Lawyer earlier this week about a possible move Sale denied his exit, stating: “It’s news to me.”
Of the three latest partner departures, two are understood to be joining the same firm along with two corporate associates, although where they are joining is yet to be confirmed.
Reacting to the news, Dundas & Wilson’s co-managing partner Caryn Penley said: “We’ve been open about our plans to manage our business. We’re focussing on our strengths in both Scotland and London. Last month, for the first time, we were appointed to the Government Procurement Service legal panel in England & Wales. Our London office is a key platform for us going forward.
“We don’t comment on individual departures or rumours. We are acting decisively to manage our business and some departures are a consequence of that.”
