On 28th May 2012 Shield & Kyd merged with Lindsays. The merger of these two well-known Scottish law firms has created a firm with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, North Berwick and Jedburgh.
Our merged firm has 27 partners and over 200 staff. With expertise in providing commercial property, dispute resolution and corporate advice, advising family businesses, dealing with family law matters and employment issues and helping people to buy and sell their homes we can help with all your personal, family or business affairs.

Alasdair Cummings, Managing Partner of Lindsays, commented on the merger: “It is a perfect fit, both in terms of the expertise we have gained and in terms of the geographical footprint.”

“Lindsays now enjoys a network of offices from the Scottish Borders to Angus, taking in three of Scotland’s major cities. I don’t think any other firm can offer the same kind of network.”

Peter Tweedie, Partner, commented: “The merger provides a perfect cultural fit in terms of our people and the areas of expertise of our respective firms. It has both enhanced and strengthened the range of services we are able to provide to all of our clients whether in relation to their personal, family or business affairs”

Derek Petrie, a Partner based in Lindsays Dundee office said: “This is an extremely exciting time for us. Looking at the Tayside market alone, the merger means that people in Dundee and the surrounding area now have a much greater choice when it comes to seeking legal advice from major firms, with access to a wide range of expertise.”
