Towry Law opens new Glasgow office

Towry Law has today opened new offices in Glasgow, which will serve as the base for its 28-strong Glasgow team.

Towry Law says the offices have the capacity to accommodate more people as the company continues to expand its operations in Scotland.

Head of private client Andy Cowan says: “We are extremely excited about our new Glasgow offices. We have had a presence in the city for many years, and these new premises will provide a high quality environment for both our clients and professional contacts, demonstrating our continued commitment to growing our business in Scotland.

“We believe that a fee-based service is the only way private and corporate clients can ensure they are receiving truly independent wealth advice, and we look forward to continuing to build relationships with clients, and their legal and accounting advisers, in and around Glasgow in order to provide this.”
