A number of senior appointments have been announced at two Scottish legal firms.
CMS has appointed Kenny Henderson (pictured) as a partner in the litigation & arbitration practice.

He joins CMS from Stewarts where he co-led its competition litigation team. He is ranked in Chambers and is recognised in the Legal 500 and in Who’s Who Legal.
Shepherd and Wedderburn has promoted six solicitors to associate, four of whom joined the firm as trainees.
Leigh Herd (contentious construction), Emma Guthrie (property and infrastructure), Katy Fitzpatrick (banking and finance), Nathaniel Buckingham (contentious construction), Andrew Winton (commercial disputes and regulation) and James Bulpitt (banking and finance) will assume their new roles on 1 October.
Andrew Blain, managing partner, said: “It is particularly pleasing to see the achievements of so many former Shepherd and Wedderburn trainees recognised in our latest round of promotions. I wish them every success as they embark on the next stage of their careers.”
