Media Release: Miller Samuel Hill Brown acquires licensing division of Lindsays


LEADING Scottish legal practice, Miller Samuel Hill Brown (MSHB), has acquired the licensing division of Lindsays for an undisclosed sum, to create what is believed to be the largest in-house legal licensing team in Scotland.

From Monday 24 October 2016, Hill Brown Licensing, MSHB’s specialist division, will comprise a team of 12, who, from offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, will represent and manage the interests of a significantly increased licensed trade client base.

Audrey Junner, partner at Hill Brown Licensing, comments: “We are delighted to announce the expansion of Hill Brown Licensing and equally delighted to be extending our services to our new client base. We look forward to developing strong business relationships with all concerned and anticipate a smooth transition for both clients and team members alike.”

Peter Lawson, partner at Hill Brown Licensing, echoed these sentiments: “By adding to our department, we have greatly strengthened our offering thus ensuring we continue to deliver an exceptional service to our licensed trade clients, while supporting our future growth ambitions.”

The move follows a strategic decision by Lindsays to focus on their other key specialisms and Alasdair Cummings, managing partner at Lindsays, notes: “We have enjoyed a close working relationship with the team from Hill Brown Licensing for many years and are delighted to have reached an agreement with them.

“There are many similarities between our Legal 500 Tier 1 Licensing practices – they share a similar culture and approach to client management as well as being long established professionals who are greatly respected in the market.”

MSHB was incorporated on 29 February 2016 as the result of two of Glasgow’s leading law firms, Hill Brown and Miller Samuel, joining forces to create one of the city’s largest independent legal practices.

Boasting over 265 years practising law in Scotland, Miller Samuel Hill Brown is recognised as the only Scottish practice to enjoy membership of the prestigious International Lawyers Network.
