Scottish law firm, Blackadders, and Aberdeen-based solicitors, Plenderleath Runcie, are to merge on 8 April 2019.
The merged practice will have 28 partners and over 230 staff and will trade under the Blackadders banner. Plenderleath Runcie specialises in corporate law, commercial property and private client.
The combined firm will offer a full service capability for business and private clients, acting for thousands of private individuals and several national ‘household name’ businesses and charities.
John Plenderleath, Colin Runcie and Neil Robb, partners at Plenderleath Runcie, will become partners with Blackadders.
Johnston Clark, Blackadders’ managing partner, said: “We are delighted to be strengthening Blackadders by joining forces with Plenderleath Runcie, a respected law firm in Aberdeen. This will give the firm a stronger presence in the city and will create increased strength and depth of client service.”
Mr Clark said that the merger with Plenderleath Runcie was motivated by a desire to service its existing client base and to develop new business within the region.
This latest move follows the recent merger between Blackadders and the Glasgow based practice of Boyle Shaughnessy.
