Morisons underscores growth with move and appointments
Morisons has completed its move to a new Edinburgh office at 1 Exchange Crescent in Conference Square.
The practice, which has 19 partners, around 100 staff, and another office in Glasgow, has relocated to the larger Edinburgh premises as part of its ongoing growth, which has been underscored by a series of new appointments.
Jacqueline Mccluskey has joined as a partner specialising in employment law from HBJ Gateley, Rachel Macdonald has joined the family team from Thorley Stephenson and Vicky Baird has joined the personal injuries team from Thompsons.
Lucy Gannon has been promoted to partner in the business team.
The firm has also kept open the possibility of further acquisitions after taking over Edinburgh firms Bonar MacKenzie and Macrae, Flett & Rennie in recent years.
Partner Robin Valentine said: “It’s interesting times for the legal profession and we’ve strived in the past few years to ensure investment in the business even during challenging times through our staff and technology, which has been a game changer in our business.
“As well as contributing to our growth, our acquisitions have enabled us to attract highly skilled people, which is crucial as the industry starts to experience improving market conditions. And it’s something we wouldn’t rule out in the future if the right opportunity comes along.”
