Third consecutive term
Unanimous vote to re-elect Brodies chairman
Brodies chairman, Christine O’Neill (pictured) has been re-elected to serve a third consecutive term in the role.
Partners voted unanimously for Ms O’Neill, who was first elected to the position of chairman in 2013, to continue to guide the law firm through the next three years.
As chairman, she will remain closely involved in the firm’s business planning and governance and will continue to represent the partnership in upholding the firm’s professional standards and supporting the well-being of her colleagues. Her third term will commence on 1 May.
Ms O’Neill is a litigation and public law lawyer. In the last 12 months she has acted as adviser on constitutional law matters to the Scottish Parliament’s finance and constitution committee.
In her role as first standing junior to the Scottish Government, she was part of the Lord Advocate’s legal team in the Supreme Court hearing in July last year on the lawfulness of the Scottish Parliament’s Brexit legislation.
Nick Scott, Brodies’ managing partner, said: “It has been a privilege to work alongside Christine since becoming managing partner in May last year.
“Beyond fulfilling all the formal demands of the role of chairman, she continually encourages everyone in our firm to be the best of themselves. In that regard, she acts as an exemplar herself.”
