Building on an existing successful presence in Kilmarnock, Partner Fraser Lang commented: “We know that our services will be in demand in Ayr and already work for a number of clients in the town, including the local authority, national and local property companies, developers, banks and private clients.
“We are confident that this expansion will lead to further opportunities and we feel that we can offer a speed of turnaround and efficiency that local people and the business community will appreciate. We also offer specialist services that a number of local contacts will benefit from, including Investment, Licensed Trade & Leisure, Planning services and a host of additional skills. Now all on tap from a local base in Ayr town centre.”
The new office is located in 12 Alloway Place, a mid-terrace traditional office which has been recently refurbished and finished to the highest standard.
The company’s Kilmarnock office was established in 1998, following the merger with Douglas Inglis & Partners, and will continue to operate with a staff of 14. Three new jobs have been created within Graham + Sibbald in the area, as a result of opening in Ayr.
Fraser Lang will head up the office and be responsible for the commercial department, Alasdair Cameron is in charge of the residential department and Laura Samson has moved from the Kilmarnock office to become Ayr office manager.
