Sandra Cassels will be joining the firm as a partner whilst Julie Scott-Gilroy and Caroline Earnshaw will join as associates.
The new hires further underline the firm’s commitment to a ‘talent first’ strategy, which has underpinned 60 per cent revenue growth over the last five years. They come less than a month after Alan Stewart arrived as partner in the wider Commercial Real Estate team and bring that team’s total headcount to 64 people.
Jonathan Seddon, who heads the firm's construction team, said: "Sandra, Julie and Caroline are all talented and experienced construction law specialists with great reputations in the market. They will add significantly to the strength in depth of our team. The roster of truly independent Scottish firms is dwindling, and our focus on talent is setting us apart.”
Morton Fraser’s Commercial Real Estate team has seen revenues grow by 11% in the last 12 months and was recently shortlisted for Property Legal Team of the Year at the Scottish Property Awards 2019.
