One of Scotland’s leading law firms has announced that it has moved its main legal and wealth office in Aberdeen to new premises in the Granite City.
Aberdein Considine, which has a team of 464 and 21 offices – 19 in Scotland and two in England - has relocated its main legal and wealth teams to Blenheim House in the city’s West End.
The firm’s head office has been located on Bon Accord Crescent since 1986. This will continue to house the Business Support, Conveyancing, Leasing and Lender Service teams.
and colleagues from its legal departments and wealth business have transferred to what is now the flagship legal and wealth headquarters for Aberdeen.
The internal features of the new 6,049 sq ft office at Blenheim House have been designed specifically for Aberdein Considine and provides a modern, fit-for-purpose location for both colleagues and clients.
The Aberdein Considine offices in Bon Accord Crescent began as one property and over the years as the firm has grown it was necessary to expand the space. The firm now currently occupies three joined properties on the street.
As part of its ambitious growth strategy, Aberdein Considine has also been focusing on the expansion and strengthening of its legal teams and specialisms. The past year has seen several key senior hires including Robert Holland as Partner and Head of Employment Law, Chris Richardson, Partner and Head of Commercial Real Estate (England and Wales), and Rod Hutchison, Partner in the Corporate and Commercial team.
Jacqueline Law, Managing Partner at Aberdein Considine, said: “The move to Blenheim House represents a pivotal aspect of our broader investment in people and services. The previous year was a successful one for us as a firm and we are poised to move forward with the next phase of our strategy in the coming year.
“Our offices in Bon Accord Crescent have served us well over the years, but with the development of the firm, as well as the extensive range of services we provide, space was at a premium and it was increasingly clear we required additional premises that reflected the firm we are today.
"In collaboration with our suppliers and developers, we've designed a space that is not only modern and functional but also allows for future growth.
“Retaining a strong presence in Aberdeen's heart is essential. It’s a remarkable city – one with many opportunities in 2024 and beyond.”
Approximately 50 colleagues from Family Law, Private Client, Employment Law, Dispute Resolution, Corporate, Commercial Real Estate, as well as AC Wealth have moved to the new West End office on Fountainhall Road. The offices at Bon Accord Crescent will remain the firm’s head office.
As well as being Scotland’s largest solicitor estate and lettings agent, Aberdein Considine works with a broad range of commercial, public sector and private clients. The firm also operates a Scotland-wide team of mortgage brokers as well as a network of Independent Financial Advisers through its AC Wealth business.
