MacRoberts and Morton Fraser rumoured to be in merger talks

Scottish legal heavyweights MacRoberts and Morton Fraser are in late stage merger talks, according to reports.

A merger would establish a new firm with a turnover of £38 million, making it the sixth largest by revenue in Scotland.

Both firms’ revenue is about £19 million, making it an equal tie-up.

A spokeswoman for MacRoberts told our sister publication Scottish Legal News: “At any point we are in conversation with a number of individuals, teams and firms and it would be inappropriate to make any comment on the existence or otherwise of any such conversations.”
