Since John (Ian) Grant first advised us of his intention to retire, we have given a lot of thought to finding the most effective means by which to ensure continuity of service for all of our clients and of employment for our committed and long-serving team in Duns. After exploring several options, in what remains a difficult commercial environment, the conclusion we reluctantly reached was that the optimum solution, if possible, would be to sell our Duns office as a going concern. We are pleased to announce that we have now managed to achieve that objective, with the handover being effected as at 19th June 2015. Although Ian Grant has retired from our firm, he has told us that he will be continuing with the new owners for some time to come. All clients whose affairs we had been handling via our Duns office, and whose documents are held there, will receive a letter with further details from the new owners. For our part, we would like to thank all clients concerned for entrusting their business to Iain Smith & Partners WS in the past – and to wish them, along with our loyal staff who are to remain in Duns, Ian and the new owners of the Duns business well for the future.
After a period of 35 years with the firm, John (Ian) Grant ceased to be a partner of Iain Smith & Partner WS at the end of April 2015. We are pleased to announce, however, that Ian will continue to work in his new role as consultant, in our Duns office, providing the same range of legal advice and assistance as before.
The partners are pleased to announce that, with effect from 1stJanuary 2013,
The question as to precisely how the rights and liabilities of former
cohabitees under the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 ought to be
assessed by the courts is one which has given rise to considerable
uncertainty. Much of that uncertainty has now been removed.
