Dundas and Wilson, Scotland’s biggest law firm, plans to cut 50 jobs from all three of its offices, citing a lack of work as the economy has worsened.  35 Graduate trainees who were due to start this year have been asked to defer their positions until 2010.
Edinburgh, where 308 of the D&W staff are based, is likely to see around 23 job losses, while Glasgow and London, which employ 168 and 193 workers respectively, will lose around 14 staff each.

The firms managing partner, Donald Shaw, said: “We have not taken this decision lightly but unfortunately we must act to rebalance our capacity with our predicted levels of future business. This is a reflection of market conditions. The economy is not looking like it is improving and we need to accept that.

“There are a small number of partners affected; these cuts are coming across the whole business.”

He added: “Almost every area (of the business] has been hit, except restructuring services and litigation.”
