In brief: Maclays sets up London litigation team

Leading Glasgow firm Maclay Murray Spens is to set up a litigation team at its London office. It has recruited a partner from a city firm, who is yet to be named. “We have experienced a considerable growth in client requirement for English litigation services and it now makes sense to have a team in London,” said Michael Walker, Maclays' senior partner. The firm has also recruited Robin Garrett, a property partner from 12-partner Edinburgh firm Steedman Ramage, who will join the firm at an undisclosed date. Last week the firm announced the recruitment of two partners from Edinburgh firm Dundas & Wilson.
