Maclay Murray & Spens LLP is one of Scotland’s largest law firms operating throughout the UK from offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and London and on the continent from an office in Brussels. With a broad client base, national and international, corporate and private the firm is now ranked as one of the top 50 in the UK. MMS is also the sole member of Lex Mundi, the international network of leading independent legal firms which enables us to offer our clients the highest level of legal advice and support in 97 countries around the globe. With 72 partners and over 260 additional fee earners it underlines our ambitions to consolidate our position as a leading legal firm.
Our financial services practice has been significantly enhanced since our merger with City Law Partnership (CLP) in 2004, and our service offering is now much more comprehensive and broad ranging. This was further boosted in 2006 by acquiring a majority shareholding in compliance and accountancy consultancy firm Leale-Green Limited (MMS Regulatory Solutions). Our clients come from a number of financial services sectors including banking, insurance, securities, investment trusts, asset management and private equity. Our spectrum of work ranges from mergers and acquisitions work through to compliance and regulatory support. We provide transactional and advisory services to banks, insurance companies, fund managers, custodians, brokers, other financial institutions and both open-ended and closed end funds (retail, institutional, private equity and hedge funds).
The firm is committed to providing a consistently excellent quality of service across our entire service range. Our view is that ‘very smart people’ hire smart lawyers. Our people and our clients bring innovation, lateral thinking and intelligence to bear on the problems and challenges they have faced in business to find solutions.
