Mason said: “The level of in-bound demand from both existing and new clients for our corporate finance services been astonishing and creates some fantastic opportunities across the firm. Our new Glasgow office will give us another local base from which to service C+T’s growing client base. A number of these clients have recently opened new offices themselves, so we are simply mirroring their growth and commitment to Scotland.”

The firm was founded in 1885 by George Chiene and James Tait and now has ten partners and more than 120 staff across its four offices.

Managing partner Carol Flockhart said: “The new Glasgow office is part of our measured growth strategy. Following on from our expansion into Inverness last year, this marks another exciting development for the firm.
