<a class=Dundas & Wilson to cut 50 jobs” />Edinburgh-headquartered firm Dundas & Wilson has announced a redundancy consultation with up to 50 people across its three offices at risk of losing their jobs.

The firm, which has offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London, currently employs 669 people.

London managing partner Donald Shaw said, “We’ve not taken this decision lightly, but unfortunately we must act to re-balance our capacity with our predicted levels of future business.

“Our focus remains squarely on clients’ needs and we’ll take great care to manage team composition to maintain the best possible service to clients.

“Our restructuring will also introduce even greater cross-discipline flexibility, allowing us to respond quickly to changing client needs against a challenging economic backdrop.”

The job cuts will affect lawyers as well as support staff.
