Cullen Kilshaw LLP Solicitors and Estate Agents is delighted to announce an imminent assimilation with JD Clark & Allan, a long-established and highly regarded legal firm based in Duns in the Scottish Borders.

The assimilation, which will take effect from 1st December 2023, will bring together two firms with complementary areas of expertise and a shared commitment to providing outstanding legal and estate agency services to their clients. The combined firm will continue to trade under the name of Cullen Kilshaw LLP.

Cullen Kilshaw has expanded significantly over the past few years and now has offices in Galashiels, Hawick, Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose, Peebles, and Selkirk, along with Annan and Langholm in Dumfries and Galloway. With a large team of experienced solicitors, paralegals, trainees and support staff they provide a full range of legal services to clients throughout the south of Scotland with specialisms in all of the main high street practice areas, including property, administration of estates, family law, commercial law, debt recovery, and preparation of Wills and Powers of Attorney.

Cullen Kilshaw is focused on bringing a modern, forward-thinking approach to their delivery of specialised legal advice using innovative technology alongside personal client care to provide quality reliable services for their clients. The firm invests in their people and the latest technology to ensure efficiency, security, and convenience, including online consultations and cloud-based storage, allowing their teams to meet clients’ needs in a timely and professional manner fit for today’s digital and mobile age.

JD Clark & Allan, which was originally founded in 1932 by James Duncan Clark, has a deserved reputation for excellence in all aspects of court, residential and agricultural conveyancing, residential estate agency, Wills, Powers of Attorney and Guardianship, Executries, Family Law and Civil litigation, to their many clients in the Duns and Berwickshire areas. JD Clark & Allan has been serving the people of Berwickshire and beyond for almost a century and has built a loyal client base and a strong community presence. The firm is known for its friendly and professional approach and its dedication to delivering the best possible outcomes for their clients.

Ross Kilshaw, partner at Cullen Kilshaw, said: “We are very excited about this assimilation, which will strengthen our position as the leading solicitor estate agents in the Scottish Borders. We have always admired the work of JD Clark & Allan and we are looking forward to welcoming their staff and clients to our firm, and to continuing their proud legacy in the town of Duns. We believe that by combining our resources and expertise, we will be able to offer an even better service to existing, and new, clients in the Duns area.”

Amy Dickson, director at JD Clark & Allan, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Cullen Kilshaw, a firm that shares our values and vision. Our firm has been serving the people of Berwickshire and beyond for generations and we are confident that this assimilation will ensure the continuity and quality of our services. Joining Cullen Kilshaw will help us to quickly modernise and focus on providing the highest quality legal services for generations to come. We are grateful to our loyal clients for their support over the years and we hope that they will continue to trust us with their legal and property needs.”
