Historic Scottish law firms merge to create top-four player
Two of Scotland’s oldest law firms have merged in a move which creates a new independent “top tier” player.
Morton Fraser, which has been providing legal advice since 1614, and 150-year-old MacRoberts have joined forces to become one of the “big four” independent Scottish firms by revenue, alongside Brodies, Burness Paull, and Shepherd & Wedderburn.
The newly merged entity, Morton Fraser MacRoberts, will have a team of 250 solicitors and revenue of £46 million, which is believed to be 30% higher than its closest rival.
Scottish legal firm concedes independence
Scottish legal firm Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie, whose roots date back more than 150 years in Glasgow, has joined forces with larger English counterpart Irwin Mitchell via what has been described as a “strategic investment”.

Fraser Gillies, managing partner at WJM, described the link-up with Sheffield’s Irwin Mitchell as a “landmark moment” for his firm.
