MULTI award-winning firm Gilson Gray has accelerated its recent expansion into Dundee by merging with local property firm, Wallace and Co Property Management.

The addition of Wallace and Co Property Management will see the transfer of local property experts Elaine Wallace, Pauline Traill and Derek Tyson to the Gilson Gray Property Services team.

With scope for further growth in property lettings and conveyancing, the tie-up with Wallace and Co will allow Gilson Gray to offer its extensive range of property and legal services to clients in the Tayside area.

And in an immediate display of commitment to support the local community through the Coronavirus crisis, Gilson Gray will also be offering landlords a half price lettings fee for the first six months if they sign up by May 30th 2020.

Elaine Wallace, Gilson Gray lettings director, said: “We’ve got to know Gilson Gray very well over the past year or so and we really believe we’ve found our perfect business partner.

“It’s a really exciting time for us – we share like-minded vision and values, as well as complimentary leadership styles.

“With a lot of changes in the industry over the past few years, it’s really important that we evolve and adopt alongside them.”

The move comes following recent expansion for Gilson Gray, including the launch of new offices in Dundee and North Berwick, and the acquisition of Coulters Lettings in Edinburgh and Millar Campbell Solicitors in Glasgow.

Matthew Gray, Gilson Gray Property Services managing director, said: “Moving into a fourth location in Scotland is a phenomenal achievement for a five-year-old legal firm.

“The addition of Elaine and her team will bring a brand-new dynamic to our full-service offering – their local expertise and experience will be invaluable for us as we continue to expand in the area.”

Established in 2014, Gilson Gray has grown to 150 staff across six offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and East Lothian, each of which offers a full range of property, legal and financial services.
