Irvine joins law firm’s regulatory team
Independent commercial law firm Davidson Chalmers has recruited Laura Irvine as its eleventh partner to head up its newly-launched regulatory team. She joins from BTO Solicitors where she was a partner.
A data protection and cyber security specialist, Ms Irvine wrote the Law Society of Scotland’s Guide to GDPR published earlier this year. She also chaired a series of GDPR road shows run by the organisation prior to the new data protection laws being introduced in May this year.
She is a criminal solicitor advocate and former procurator fiscal depute and a director of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre.
As head of the regulatory practice, she will lead a team supporting companies, and individuals, who find themselves involved in the criminal justice system where there is an ever-increasing focus on regulating how business is done.
Davidson Chalmers managing partner, Andrew Chalmers, said Ms Irvine’s appointment “marks another exciting development in the growth of the firm.”
