Promoting legal profession
Advocates society appoints Pinsent Masons partner
Oil and gas lawyer, Martin Ewan (pictured), has been appointed president of the Society of Advocates in Aberdeen.
The society promotes legal professional expertise in Aberdeen and the north east and its origins can be traced back to the 16th century. Its members include lawyers, members of the judiciary, supporting professionals and academics.
Mr Ewan, a partner in global law firm Pinsent Masons, specialises in advising national and international oil companies on corporate, commercial and technology exploitation issues. He is a contributing author to the University of Aberdeen’s Oil & Gas Law textbook and is a double graduate of the University.
North East Scotland MSP, Liam Kerr, lodged a motion at the Scottish Parliament congratulating Mr Ewan on his appointment and acknowledging the society’s contribution to public life.
Mr Ewan said: “I will endeavour to promote the legal profession and the important contribution it makes to society and the economy of the north east of Scotland and beyond.”
