Shepherd and Wedderburn has promoted five of its lawyers to partner, bringing the total number at the firm to 78.
The promotions are across the firm’s Edinburgh, Glasgow and London offices.
Newly-promoted in Scotland are Elaine Hunter (property and infrastructure); Lauren McLeod (property and infrastructure); Tom Swan (corporate); Stuart Greenwood (rural property and business).
Ben Pilbrow (commercial disputes and regulation) joined the City office in 2012 as a solicitor from a London-headquartered firm.
Ms McLeod and Mr Swan began their professional careers as trainees at the firm, and Mr Greenwood was a trainee at Tods Murray, which was acquired by Shepherd and Wedderburn in 2014.
Ms Hunter joined the firm in 2014, having been a director at Tods Murray.
Commenting on the five promotions, Stephen Gibb, chief executive, said: “I am particularly pleased that three of our new partners were trainees at this firm or Tods Murray, which reflects our long-term commitment to fostering talent in the business.”
