Keith, who brings over 40 years’ experience to the 54 strong Private Client team at Morton Fraser, will play a key role in delivering advice and managing the firm’s vast client base which includes individuals, families, business owners and executives.
His appointment follows the recent move of Partners Gregor Mitchell and Douglas Hunter from Addleshaw Goddard to Morton Fraser’s Private Client team.
In addition to his private client role with Morton Fraser, Keith will continue working as a consultant with Addleshaw Goddard supporting his clients on their business and commercial work.
Sue Hunter, Partner and Head of Morton Fraser’s Private Client Division, said: “Keith’s appointment is a major coup for the firm and for the team. He is a highly regarded individual within the Scottish legal world and is known for building excellent relationships with his clients.
“With the recent addition of two new partners to the team, Keith’s consultancy role will really help to cement existing client relationships as well as establish new ones coming to the firm for the first time.”
Keith who has an OBE due to his services to cricket, is also currently the Chairman of the Disciplinary Board at the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, Honorary Legal Advisor of The Royal Scots Benevolent Fund, Clerk to the Governors at Fettes College and Chairman of Cricket Development Scotland Trust.
Keith added: “Gregor and Douglas’ decision to move to Morton Fraser signalled a good time and opportunity for me to consider a new home for my private client work. The high level of service, technical advice and expertise that the team at Morton Fraser offer makes it a natural transition. I look forward to introducing my existing clients to the firm as well as building new relationships.”
