Peter McLuckie joins Harper Macleod in Elgin
Harper Macleod has recruited Peter McLuckie, formerly legal and compliance director at Baxters Food Group, as a senior associate in its Elgin office.
Mr McLuckie, a corporate lawyer with specialist knowledge of the food & drink sector, had a long career as an in-house adviser at the highest levels of industry and most recently practiced at Inverness firm Munro & Noble.
Chris Kerr, lead partner of Harper Macleod’s Highlands and Islands office, said: “Bringing in someone of Peter’s calibre is a great boost to our burgeoning practice in Moray.
“When we moved to the area in September we made it clear that we were committed to extending the full Harper Macleod offering of commercial, rural and personal legal services to clients in Moray, and were also committed to growing our team on the ground.
“Peter is a first-rate corporate lawyer with a great reputation, and has spent much of his career working within FTSE 100 businesses. We are renowned for having the pre-eminent corporate law team in the Highlands, Islands and Moray so it is a great match and we’re delighted that he has chosen to join us and be part of what we are building. He will be a great asset for the firm and the many clients we advise in Moray and beyond.
Mr McLuckie said: “I’m delighted to be part of Harper Macleod’s expanding team. I know the firm well and have been impressed by its growth and ambition over a number of years.
“When I saw it make the move to Moray it seemed like the perfect opportunity to become part of that growth. Chris and the team have a great practice and client base already, and I hope to help them build that further over the coming years.”
