Blackadders LLP has announced an exciting move to a new Dundee office in the heart of the city centre.

The Scottish law firm and wealth management firm will move to DC Thomson’s Meadowside building, leasing the first floor and a section of the ground floor from the content, technology and investments business. Blackadders will have a dedicated entrance to the building from Euclid Crescent and a reception and client meeting rooms on the ground floor as well exclusive occupation of the first floor.

Nearly 130 staff members who work in legal and support services across Commercial Property, Corporate, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Family Law, Private Client, Property, Residential and Rural Land and Business will move to the recently refurbished open plan office.

The law firm’s Dundee office has been based on Reform Street in the city for over 90 years and this short move of just under 150 metres will see them in their new home in the DC Thomson headquarters which was originally opened in 1906.

Emma Gray, Joint Managing Partner of Blackadders said, “It’s fantastic to be staying in the centre of Dundee, sharing the premises of another well-known Dundee business and an iconic building in the city.

It’s just a stone’s throw away from our current office but it’s light years ahead in terms of facilities, comfort and technology. We can’t wait to move in.”

A 12-week building programme will commence shortly and Blackadders hopes to be in the new office by autumn 2024.

Blackadders’ Joint Managing Partner Ryan McKay added, “This state-of-the-art office will complement our other Scottish premises in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. It shows our strong commitment to the city of Dundee and offers a bright and flexible office environment for our employees.”

Chairman of DC Thomson, Christopher Thomson, said: “We are pleased to welcome Blackadders into our iconic Meadowside HQ. Our and their presence there maintains a significant footfall in the city centre and the immediate surrounding areas. We have a degree of hybrid working now which gives our own colleagues greater flexibility and also means we have more capacity in our building.

“The regeneration of Dundee continues with transformative projects like the Waterfront, the V&A Dundee, The Eden Project, The MacManus, and the development of the key Life Sciences buildings and Dundee University. We are proud to continue to play our part, including the significant investment we have made in the redevelopment and refurbishment of our unique Meadowside HQ.”
