New hire for law firm

Shipping expert joins Shepherd & Wedderburn

scottLaw firm Shepherd and Wedderburn has appointed Charles Scott as a consultant to its Aberdeen office.  He was formerly senior partner at specialist shipping practice, Mackinnons.

Mr Scott has been a commercial lawyer in the north east for 38 years. He has also served a private client base in the region, including many families with their roots in the fishing industry. 

Shepherd and Wedderburn chief executive, Stephen Gibb, said:  “The appointment of Charles was made not only to capitalise on his broad commercial acumen and strong links with the north east, but with a view to introducing new expertise and a cross fertilisation of ideas in the more niche area of shipping, an area which dovetails nicely with our energy and natural resources practice.”

The hire follows that of fellow Aberdonian, John Rutherford, who joined the firm’s corporate and commercial practice in Aberdeen in April.

Mr Scott said: “I am excited to be part of Shepherd and Wedderburn, and look forward to being part of the firm’s success story by serving old and new clients in the region.”
