Donald Reid and Morag Inglis
Donald Reid is stepping down as chairman of Mitchells Roberton after 24 years, and as partner, but will remain as a consultant and Dean of the Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow.
Managing partner Morag Inglis, who has been with Glasgow’s longest-established firm of solicitors throughout her entire career and was appointed the first female partner of the firm in 1993, will become chairman.
Professor Roderick Paisley, a professor of Scots Law at the University of Aberdeen, and a specialist in the law of property, conveyancing, succession, and trusts, will join the practice as a consultant.
Ms Inglis said: “I have a hard act to follow as chair. Donald has been an outstanding leader of the firm, and I hope to build on his legacy in taking Mitchells Roberton into a new era.
“I am delighted also that Professor Roderick Paisley is joining Mitchells Roberton as consultant.
“Professor Paisley is recognised in Scotland as a leading expert on the law of conveyancing generally and the law of servitudes particularly.
“In my role as managing partner I have had huge support from Mark McGorm as partnership director so I am delighted that he and I will continue to work together in the development and management of Mitchells Roberton.”
As of 1 April, the partner head count at Mitchell Roberton will be 12 supported by 65 team members.
