Edinburgh firm Brodies has publicly criticised rival firm Dundas & Wilson's decision to demerge from its private client department. Its statement suggests that Dundas & Wilson, which is in merger talks with the Andersens legal network, was forced into a demerger because of the talks. Brodies' statement reads: "Doubtless under pressure from their intended 'owners' at Arthur Andersen, the largest firm in Scotland will no longer provide any private client service."

He denied the demerger was the result of pressure from Arthur Andersen.
