Based in the firm’s Glasgow office, Turner, an employment law specialist, joins Morton Fraser from Dentons (previously Maclay, Murray & Spens), where she worked for over 9 years advising both employers and employees on employment law matters with a focus on discrimination law.
Morton Fraser’s Employment Law team has more Law Society accredited specialists than any other team in Scotland and advises on a range of issues including unfair dismissal, redundancy, settlement agreements, executive dismissals and departures and discrimination as well as on disciplinary and grievance issues.
Innes Clark, Partner and Head of Morton Fraser’s Employment team, said: “As one of the leading employment law teams in Scotland we want to ensure that we have the best team to meet the needs of our clients.
“Elise’s knowledge and expertise means she is the perfect fit and she will be integral to our plans to continue to grow this area of the firm over the coming months.”
Elise Turner, Senior Associate at Morton Fraser, added: “Morton Fraser's employment team has a fantastic reputation and I’m really excited to join a team and firm that is known for its quality work and which has an ambitious strategy and plans for growth. The fact that Morton Fraser is also adopting agile working practices as well as the friendly open nature of the firm is also part of what attracted me to join the team.”
Elise Turner is the second lawyer to join Morton Fraser’s Employment Law team from Dentons this year, with Legal Director Alan Delaney making the same move in April.
