Dundas & Wilson set to merge with CMS Cameron McKenna
Dundas & Wilson has announced that it is set to merge with CMS Cameron McKenna on 1 May 2014. The partnership of Dundas & Wilson voted to become part of the CMS network last Tuesday in Scotland.
Dundas & Wilson ha been looking for a merger partner for a while, unsuccessfully courting Bircham Dyson Bell, while reporting a drop in profits of 21% deferring most starting trainees, and offering just three jobs to 11 qualifying trainees.
The manager of CMS Cameron McKenna’s Energy, Projects & Construction Practice Group, Stephen Millar, said there were "strong and compelling client synergies" between the firms.
Caryn Penley and Allan Wernham, Co-Managing Partners of Dundas & Wilson, said that together the firms would have “unrivalled strength and depth in Scotland, an exceptional UK platform and global reach”.
