Meanwhile, Fiona McKinnon has been made partner in the firm’s commercial real estate practice and is a specialist in retail, development and investment work, with a particular focus on the petroleum sector and regeneration projects.

The nine internal solicitor promotions include three new senior associates: Alasdair Johnson in the private client team, Ann-Marie Chalmers (dispute resolution) and Lesley Fitzgerald (commercial real estate). They also include a new associate, David Coutts, dispute resolution – family law.

Furthermore, the promotions include five new senior solicitors: Russell Laughland (private client), Robert McNab (private client), Kirsty Jamieson (corporate), Steven Moffat (dispute resolution), and Sophia Warriner-Gallyer (commercial real estate).

Recently reappointed managing partner at the firm, Murray McCall, commented: “After investing in our people, mergers, technology and lateral hires last year, we’re continuing to invest in our team through internal promotions and more lateral hires in 2017 and it’s encouraging to see the growth coming through as we approach the end of the year.”
