Reply Link Anonymous 15 February 2013 at 17:44 Why would anyone want to merge with Dundas & Wilson? Reply Link Tom B 16 February 2013 at 17:14 Why is this a news story? Perhaps next week you can also reveal that Eversheds are not in merger discussions with InjuryLawyers4U.com? Or, despite speculation late last year you can confirm that Dundas & Wilson was not having an affair with Eastenders’ Kat Slater? If you are going to print rumours after everyone involved appears to deny they are true at least make them interesting. Reply Link Not clueless 17 February 2013 at 00:34 Ask Pinsent Masons who merged/took over McGrigors last year. Reply Link K.Slater 18 February 2013 at 11:29 Who writes this stuff? Nothing but scaremongering rumours. Or perhaps its a merger with Osbourne Clarke? Everyone else seems to going over there! Ps, it was Pat Butcher not Kat. Reply Link Erinaceous 19 February 2013 at 12:48 What is going on with the large Scottish firm? Pinsents have to rescue McGrigors after the bank threatens to call in the overdraft. Maclays fails twice to tempt Bond Pearce into the sack, and can’t find anyone else so profits continue to ski downhill fast. Dundas & Wilson continue to suffer a mighty fall from grace and don’t seem to be able to find a decent dance partner (Speechly Bircham? Really?). Only S+W have managed to stay out of the press and even they must secretly be looking around. Brodies have stolen a march on the “Big 4” given they took their eye off the ball in Scotland, and now Burness/P&W have teamed up for what looks like a great offering. All seems to be a bit of a shambles really. Reply Link Anon 1 June 2013 at 23:13 ‘Purely based on merit’ is an absolute joke.
