History[edit]

Dundas & Wilson traces its roots to 1759[3] when David Erskine founded his own legal practice in Edinburgh. Sir James Dundas of Ochtertyre Clerk to the Signet[4] subsequently joined the practice and, after the death of David Erskine, William Wilson joined the partnership to form Dundas & Wilson. From at least 1841 the firm had offices at 16 St. Andrew Square, Edinburgh.[5] The firm remained at the Square until 1991.[6]

The firm was active in Scotland during the 19th century as can be seen from the numerous references to the firm in Court of Session reports or old Sasine titles.[7][8][9][10]

Dundas & Wilson became a limited liability partnership in 2004.[11]

In May 2014 Dundas and Wilson combined with CMS.
