Legal firm Turcan Connell is marking its fifth anniversary in Glasgow with the recruitment of an experienced land and property specialist to service the west of Scotland.

The arrival of Stuart Gibb as senior associate from Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie gives Turcan Connell full coverage in Glasgow across its four key practice areas – including tax and succession, divorce and family law, and business law.

Peter Littlefield, head of the Glasgow office, said: “We took a strategic decision to move into Glasgow in 2012 as around ten per cent of our business was coming from west coast postcodes,” Mr Littlefield said. “As a high-quality private client practice, we pride ourselves on building strong, long-term relationships with clients.

Mr Gibb said current issues exercising those clients – including the impact of the Land & Buildings Transaction Tax, and a range of matters arising from land reform and community empowerment.
