  • If the info regarding each of its three regional offices holding separate merger talks with three separate firms is correct, does this not suggest the real story is that the firm is likely to very soon collapse if rescue deals are not made? In effect, are we not talking about another UK firm heading for disintegration? Will there be a pre-pack deal as Cobbetts had?

  • This seems like an excellent opportunity for Maclays, who have had a pretty awful time of it over the last few years. Despite repeated advances to potential partners their dance card has remained sadly empty and their Aberdeen office has become a virtual wasteland. There is bound to be a place at the top table for some of the current MMS Board and with a bit of luck they may even be able to retain part of their identity in the merged entity's name. "Semple Fraser & Spens" rolls off the tongue quite nicely.

  • Is this Chris Smylie's big plan? Wow. After failed mergers with Bond Pearce we get this?! It's time for this man to step aside as Maclays is going down the drain. Please MMS Partners, choose someone else.

  • Surely even Maclays can't fail to pull of that merger. A huge embarrassment if they get left at the altar again.

  • I don't understand some of the negative comments about MMS. I joined recently and have been impressed by the visionary leadership. We will do great things this year, with or without anyone else.
