Jacqueline Moore has been promoted to partner at Thorntons.

Ms Moore joined the Thorntons employment and immigration team in February 2023 and has quickly made her mark on the firm, driving growth of the specialist team, and positively impacting individual and business clients.

She said: “Immigration law is all about helping people – bringing families together, supporting businesses to grow and enabling people to start new lives in Scotland. It’s been extremely rewarding to work alongside my fellow specialist immigration practitioners and wider employment law team to make a meaningful difference to our clients.”

“Since joining Thorntons I’ve been continually impressed with the supportive and nurturing culture of the business and its highly skilled teams. It’s clear to see the growth of its operation through investment in talent, development and efficient processes. I’ve loved being able to contribute to that growth and I hope to continue this in my new role as partner.”

Thorntons managing partner, Lesley Larg, added: “We are committed to exceptional levels of client care, growth of our specialist teams and development of everyone across the firm.

“Jacqueline has been a fantastic addition to our employment and immigration team, complementing existing skillsets and driving transformational services for our clients. As partner we look forward to seeing the positive influence she has on the wider business.”

In addition to being a leading immigration expert, Ms Moore is also active in the wider business community, promoting gender equality through her support of Look Up Above and Beyond (LUAB). She is a founding member of LUAB – a collaborative project set up by Naeema Yaqoob Sajid and Diversity+, which brings together both individuals and organisations to explore how the Scottish legal industry can work better for both employees and employers, particularly to prevent senior female talent leaving the sector.
