Shakespeare Martineau expands in Edinburgh

Shakespeare Martineau has expanded its footprint in Edinburgh.

The law firm, which has an established heritage across England, launched in Glasgow in 2020 with the appointment of dual-qualified real estate partner Amal Kaur.

Since then, the firm has laid Scottish roots within a permanent space in Queen Street, Edinburgh, and taken on a further nine legal professionals.

Ms Kaur said: “We originally set up the practice in response to growing client demand and it’s grown 10-fold because our clients benefit from on-the-ground experts, who are backed by a 1,200-strong team of professionals across 10 other hubs in the UK.

“Our dual-qualified team members are proving incredibly useful to clients working both North and South the border, and for those wanting to expand across countries; even we were surprised by how quickly our client base grew when we first set up.”

Recent appointments include dispute resolution partner Fiona Pask, triple-qualified commercial and corporate partner Trevor Fenton, dual-qualified real estate legal director Nicky Grant, and Grant Docherty to lead the firm’s banking practice in Scotland.

The firm also recently welcomed commercial property and real estate finance solicitor Myeda Aarif, and in 2022, welcomed its first Scottish trainee.
