Looking to next stage
First female chairman for Miller Samuel Hill Brown
Mr Samuel continues as a consultant with the firm and Ms Macdonald becomes the first woman to chair MSHB, one of Scotland’s longest-established legal practices.
Accredited as a specialist in employment law, Ms Macdonald is also co-chair of the labour and employment group of the International Lawyers’ Network which provides MSHB’s clients ready access to legal services in 67 countries.
She said: “I am honoured to be trusted by my partners to guide MSHB as we navigate through a much changed legal landscape and an ever-changing business environment.
“Michael was instrumental in building the firm. I am pleased that we and our clients will continue to benefit from his expertise and wealth of knowledge in his new role within the firm. I am very much looking forward to the next stages of our growth and excited about our future.”
Mr Samuel added: “Marie is highly experienced and a much respected lawyer and colleague.
“Under her chairmanship, I expect MSHB have their best years ahead of them.”
