Davidson Chalmers Stewart appoints three new partners
Davidson Chalmers Stewart has announced the appointment of three new partners at its offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Nicola Scott, a commercial property and renewable projects specialist, joins from Brodies. She previously served as in-house counsel at SSE advising on property law aspects of their wind and hydro projects, along with business governance and regulatory matters. She will head up and build Davidson Chalmers Stewart’s commercial property team in Glasgow.
Meanwhile Arveen Arabshahi, a specialist in corporate law in the firm’s Edinburgh office, has been promoted to partner along with fellow Edinburgh-based colleague Magnus Miller, a key member of the firm’s dispute resolution team.
Mr Arabshahi joined Davidson Chalmers Stewart as a trainee in 2012 and has since developed a wealth of experience in corporate and commercial transactions. He advises clients on company acquisitions and sales, commercial contracts, joint ventures, corporate restructurings, business start-ups and corporate governance.
Mr Miller joined the firm in 2013. Over the past eight years he has gained in depth experience advising on real estate and commercial litigation as well as insolvency, debt recovery, professional negligence, regulatory matters and judicial reviews.
Davidson Chalmers Stewart’s managing partner Andrew Chalmers said: “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Nicola to the firm as a new partner and to celebrate the highly merited promotions to partner of Arveen and Magnus.
“These appointments strengthen our client offering across three of the firm’s core business areas in Edinburgh and Glasgow. It’s exciting to be able to promote from within and attract new young talent to drive the sustainable growth of the firm which continues at pace.”
