Specialist litigation firm Levy & McRae Solicitors LLP has appointed construction law specialist Richard Barrie as a partner.

Mr Barrie - one of the most respected legal experts in his field - will advise clients of the 150-year-old Glasgow firm on on all aspects of the building industry from contract negotiation to dispute management.

He joins Levy & McRae after the recent Summer signings of Stephen Giusti and Professor Leo Martin as consultants following the acquisition of Glasgow legal practice Giusti Martin.

The Levy & McRae team was further boosted with the return to the firm of Tony Caplan who has re-joined as a Partner having left in 2003. He previously joined the firm as an apprentice and became Senior Partner.

Mr Caplan, who has extensive experience in private practice, specialises in matrimonial cases, particularly those that are high value or high profile, together with property and litigation.

David McKie, managing partner at Levy & McRae, said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard Barrie to the firm. His first class construction law experience will be invaluable to our range of clients.

“Richard’s appointment, combined with Tony Caplan’s welcome return and the addition of vastly experienced solicitors Stephen Giusti, Leo Martin and their team further strengthens Levy & McRae and adds to our combined experience and skills to continue to deliver first rate, focused and astute advice to our valued clients.”

Mr McKie added that Messrs Barrie, Caplan, Giusti and Martin join the firm at an exciting time following the move to new modern office facilities at Pacific House, 70 Wellington Street, Glasgow.
