Levy & McRae has announced a number of promotions.

The firm has promoted to legal director: Sandra Biggart (private client/matrimonial), who trained with the firm in the mid-1990s and has spent most of her career there and Carol Boyd, (commercial litigation) who joined the firm in 2016 and who has over 20 years’ experience in commercial litigation, working on some of the highest value claims in the Scottish courts in recent years.

It has also promoted Amanda Buchanan (employment law), who has worked with L&M since 2017 and heads the employment team, working for businesses, representative bodies and high net worth employees and Donna Carson (commercial property), who joined the firm last year having worked for many years with a specialist property firm.

Ms Carson has since worked on a number of high value and varied transactions and has made a major impression on clients and colleagues.

Additionally, Victoria Savage (commercial litigation) has been promoted to senior associate, having joined the firm in 2015 from a specialist commercial litigation team. She has continued to work on high value and complex claims.

Christopher Reid (construction) and Andrew Park (litigation) have both been promoted to associate while Christopher Shaw and Andrew Ratter in the litigation department have been made senior solicitors.

Bill Macreath, chairman, said: “This announcement follows other promotions in our teams last summer and are richly merited. We congratulate all eight from our various teams and thank all of our staff for their dedication and commitment in a very difficult year for so many people and businesses.”

David McKie, senior partner, said: “It is one year to the day since we started working from home. In that time, the firm has come to recognise that Covid will inevitably bring new ways of working with all the challenges and opportunities that brings.

“We are very fortunate that everyone has been able to adapt to the transition so capably. However, we very much look forward to our dedicated and hardworking team all being back under one roof with all the social, employment and client benefits that will bring.”
