Legal Sector Breakfast Briefing

Armstrong Watson and Clydesdale Bank would like to invite you to the latest in our regular series of Breakfast Briefings for the Legal Services Market in South-West Scotland.

Invites are restricted to key decision makers within key regional firms.  Our intention is to hold these events for a select group of no more than 20 regular attendees.  That way we can attract high quality nationally recognised speakers to present on law firm management issues.


Consolidation within the Scottish Legal and Accountancy sector


The last 10 years have witnessed a push for consolidation within the Scottish Legal and Accountancy sectors.  The talk will focus on some of the reasons behind this whilst taking a view on the next 5-10 years.

Speaker Profiles:

Jim Calder is the Managing Director of Jim Calder Associates, his early years were consumed by rugby. One of 4 brothers who represented Scottish Schoolboys Rugby XV, he won 27 Scotland caps and represented the British Lions against New Zealand in 1983. Proud to be a member of the Scotland team who won the Grand Slam in 1984. Worst bit of advice he ever gave anyone was telling his twin brother Finlay that he was good enough to play for Scotland if only he could be bothered. Fin went on to take Jim's place in the Scotland team before captaining Scotland and the British Lions!


Jim has a BA and MBA from Heriot Watt and completed a rigorous strategic leadership course at Cambridge University. His varied career included Sales & Marketing roles with Pharmaceutical giant, Johnson and Johnson Inc, followed by Sales Director roles with both Royal Mail and Ernst & Young before taking an equity stake in an executive search practice in 1999. Jim Calder Associates was established in 2005 targeting the executive market.
