History

The firm was formed on 1st May 2006 however its roots go back as far as 1870. The business was created by the amalgamation of Robertson Paul and the Glasgow office of Peterkins, but the origins of these firms are Robertson Neilson & Co. , Andrew Paul & Co., John Martin Taylor & Co., McGettigans and Aitken Malone & Mackay.

In 2007 we acquired Allens in Bearsden and opened up in Cambridge street, Glasgow. The established name Allens remains and now operates from this office. In August 2012 we acquired the business of McCusker Cochrane & Gunn in Paisley and Shettleston. These offices continue to trade under the name of McCusker Cochrane & Gunn. In April 2013 we acquired the business of McLeish Thomson. In November 2014 the long established Glasgow firm Grant & Wylie joined and they continue to trade under that name.

Although the origins go back very many years, the outlook and methods of Peterkins Robertson Paul are very much of the present and geared for the future.
