Shepherds to join ranks of LLP

Scottish big four firm Shepherd & Wedderburn has confirmed that it will convert to limited liability partnership (LLP) status on 6 November this year.

The firm said in a statement that the move underlined its commitment to developing its business.

The firm’s conversion to an LLP was first reported earlier this year on www.thelawyer.com (16 May). It comes in a year that saw annual fee income rise by 13 per cent to £34.6m.
