Gillespie Gifford & Brown (LLP) is an amalgam of four local firms and has been in its present form since 1993.
The firm takes its origin from an amalgamation in 1985 between two old established firms in Castle Douglas, Lidderdale & Gillespie and Patrick Gifford & Co. Indeed the former traces its history back to the late Eighteenth Century.
In 1987 the firm amalgamated with a well-established practice in Kirkcudbright and the name Gillespie Gifford & Brown was taken at that stage.
There was further expansion in 1990 when the firm of Lennons joined the group to give the firm a telling presence in Dalbeattie and finally in 1993 the firm of McGowans, long established in Dumfries town, came under the umbrella.
The result has been a well-established business connection in each of the four towns and surrounding districts in which we operate. We are one of the largest Firms south of the central belt giving a mix of expertise which we think is essential to our clients' interests in the current ever changing world of legal business.
