Aberdeen’s Aberdein Considine takes on Stirling market with local merger

Aberdeen firm Aberdein Considine has expanded into Stirling with the acquisition of two-partner firm Muirhead Buchanan.

The deal, which will see the firm continue to trade as Muirhead Buchanan in the Stirling market, will allow local clients to access estate agency and financial services advice for the first time.

Until now Muirhead Buchanan has offered legal services only, focusing on conveyancing, trust and executry, family and general civil court work.

The deal means Aberdein Considine, which turns over £20m across legal, estate agency and financial advice, now has 19 offices across Scotland.

The firm’s managing partner Jacqueline Law said merging with a local firm rather than launching independently would allow Aberdein Considine to “hit the ground running in Stirling”.

Muirhead Buchanan’s two partners, Philip Anderson and Anthony Quin, retain partner status at Aberdein Considine.
