Addleshaw Goddard makes Jan Gruter partner
Jan Gruter has been promoted to partner at Addleshaw Goddard in Glasgow.
Mr Gruter joined the firm in 2018 as legal director, and has acted on behalf of a range of asset and fund management clients, especially private equity, real estate and infrastructure fund managers.
He has advised clients on many topical issues – from Brexit planning to ESG regulatory change and the establishment of sustainability focussed investment funds – and as part of his new remit will bolster the firm’s profile in the area of asset management.
The promotion is one of nine across the firm. Just under half (45 per cent) of the overall partner promotions are women.
David Kirchin, head of Scotland at Addleshaw Goddard, said: “I’m delighted that Jan has been promoted into our partnership.
“Jan has played a key role supporting fund and asset managers during the changes, and turbulence, we have seen over the last few years and this promotion is testament to a fantastic contribution. This is a firm where talented people can flourish and it is great to see Jan doing just that.”
