Brodies has unveiled six new partners as a result of its latest round of promotions.

Aberdeen-based Leigh Gould, Rhona McFarlane and Fiona Herrell step up to partner in their respective areas of personal and family, corporate and commercial (oil & gas) and employment while Edinburgh-based Lucy McCann and Chris Duff become partners in litigation while Graeme Leith is assumed as partner in real estate.

Growth in Brodies’ oil & gas team has also continued with Laura Petrie, who will be based in Aberdeen, joining the firm as legal director.

Brodies’ managing partner, Nick Scott, said: “Our new partners have each demonstrated exemplary levels of commitment to our clients and colleagues, and that is recognised today. I look forward to supporting them in their new roles as they continue to develop their careers here at Brodies.

“In our strategic plans we remain committed to bringing the sharpest minds together. That fusing of multiple viewpoints is what delivers value to our clients and encourages us to collaborate, innovate and think differently. That we have today assumed six of our colleagues as partners, and in April appointed Aberdeen-based partners Elaine Farquharson-Black and Bryan Wilson, is testament to that focus, the resilience of our clients and the trust they place in us to help them achieve their ambitions.”

In addition to the partner promotions and new appointments, Brodies has confirmed that 23 senior solicitors have been promoted to associate.

The firm has also retained 11 of its trainees as newly qualified lawyers and recruitment is on-going to appoint a further 22 to join the firm in Autumn.

“I wish all of our new recruits and colleagues receiving promotion all the best in their new roles,” Mr Scott said.
