Harper Macleod has added a partner to its personal injury & reparation team. Elaine Russell joins the firm from Irwin Mitchell where she was supervising partner for the insurance and personal injury departments in Scotland.
Commenting on her appointment, she said: “The firm is focused on achieving justice for the people it represents, often at a difficult time in their lives, and that has been the driving force behind my working life.”
Chambers UK Guide to the Legal Profession describes Ms Russell as an “accomplished solicitor” and someone who can “see problems before they appear.”
She is accredited as a specialist in personal injury law by the Law Society of Scotland, a senior litigator with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and was the Scottish regional coordinator of the Motor Accident Solicitors Society.
Martin Darroch, chief executive, said: “We’re very pleased to have attracted Elaine to add further strength to our high calibre team.”
