DAC Beachcroft has announced that health and safety specialist Zoe McDonnell has joined the firm as a partner in its six-strong Scottish regulatory – safety, health & environment team.

Based in DACB’s Glasgow office, she moves from BLM where she was a partner and led its Scottish regulatory team.

She has advised on defending health and safety and other regulatory prosecutions, along with representing parties at fatal accident inquiries throughout her legal career.

Karen Railton, DACB partner and head of regulatory services in Scotland, commented: “DACB has one of the largest regulatory teams in the UK, with 29 specialist safety, health & environment lawyers based at seven locations extending from Glasgow to Newport.

“Zoe will play an important role in helping us to extend our Scottish capability and reach still further, as we expand our services by supporting clients with training on incident response, in addition to advising those subject to regulatory investigation and legal proceedings, and providing assistance in the immediate aftermath of an incident anywhere in Scotland.”

John Maillie, DACB partner and location head for Scotland, added: “We have welcomed over 50 new colleagues to our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices during the past couple of years, and Zoe’s arrival is the latest in a series of senior appointments, as DACB responds to significant growth following further insurer and corporate client wins. Her appointment will also complement our expanding professional indemnity, construction and real estate offering in Scotland.”
