Jim Cormack QC takes on global role at Pinsent Masons
Edinburgh-based solicitor advocate Jim Cormack QC has been appointed global head of Pinsent Masons’ litigation, regulatory and tax (LRT) team.
The role involves leading the law firm’s 265-strong LRT offering, which covers common law and civil law jurisdictions, with staff based in seven UK offices and in Dublin, Dubai, Madrid, Munich, Paris and Singapore.
Mr Cormack, who joined Pinsent Masons in 2001, is dual qualified and took silk in 2018, a year after becoming a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
He said: “I am privileged to have the opportunity to be lead the firm’s LRT team which boasts a fantastic group of partners and legal directors along with our senior finance, HR, Practice Development Lawyers and technology colleagues.
“Our LRT practice is successful and thriving, which is ultimately down to the skill, commitment, hard work and enthusiasm of my colleagues, and having a collegiate and supportive environment within our team.
“I have been a dispute resolution lawyer for close to 30 years now and it is still a job I love doing. There is a thrill in picking up a client’s problem and analysing and deploying a position and to ultimately deliver a solution.”
When not travelling in his global role, Mr Cormack will be based at Pinsent Masons’ new offices at Capital Square in the heart of Edinburgh’s financial district.
