Two more partners for Harper Macleod
Law firm Harper Macleod has appointed two partners in Edinburgh taking its tally to 20 in the capital – almost doubling the staff over the past six months. The firm now has 72 partners across the country.
Richard Murray, a private client specialist and former head of the wealth protection team in the city at Shoosmiths, will bolster the firm’s provision of personal legal services to its clients in the east of Scotland. Dawn Robertson, who has experience at a number of Scottish firms, joins the employment law team.
Professor Lorne Crerar, chairman, said: “We signalled our intent to grow extensively in Edinburgh last year and have been true to our word by almost doubling our number of partners in the city. “
Since the office move, the firm has continued to win significant work in Edinburgh, including for City of Edinburgh Council, Registers of Scotland and has been appointed to every lot of the Scottish Central Government Legal Framework.
Harper Macleod has also recruited private client solicitor Samantha Taylor to its Inverness office from Macleod & MacCallum.
