All internal promotions, the appointments were made in recognition and reward for the depth of experience and expertise the four bring to the firm’s key areas of business.
The firm has now created 11 new partners in the past year as part of its drive to bring together experience and a young dynamic as it looks to grow. Morton Fraser has 45 partners.
Chris Harte, Chief Executive at Morton Fraser, praised the new partners. He said:
“These promotions reflect the forward momentum we are enjoying across the firm’s corporate, real estate and family law teams and where our strength in depth is clearly driving new business.
“Iain has unrivalled expertise in crowdfunding having sat as a director on the board of Scotland’s leading crowdfunding company and since he joined Morton Fraser, the firm is now recognised by Chambers for Sports Law. David and Brian have both been instrumental in leading high value deals for the commercial property and house-builder teams. Clients are on the acquisition trail and their expertise is vital. Lucia becomes the third partner in our Family Law practice, where her specialist knowledge for cross border and international law builds on the team’s extensive skills.
“I’d like to offer my congratulations to all four. This is an exciting time for Morton Fraser. The position we are taking on the clarity of costs and advice is generating real energy around the firm as we look to maximise the opportunities of a stronger and more confident economy.”
