Ruth has responsibility for client-related activities and initiatives in Morton Fraser including our key client management programme.

Currently, Ruth is  working with a number of colleagues and contacts at the University of Edinburgh on The Edinburgh Foundation for Women in Law.  The Foundation brings together senior women alumni at the Law School to share experience and best practice from the legal profession on creating the conditions for women to succeed within this field.

For a number of years, Ruth has been involved in training and mentoring.  She is lead tutor on the Scottish Contemporary Public Law elective at the University of Edinburgh.  The course gives students an insight into delivering a client-centred legal service, bespoke to the public sector.  Ruth also tutors Professional Skills and Responsibilities. The course includes tendering, communication and commercial awareness. 

Public Sector expertise

She has a focus on the public sector and manages many of our key relationships.  These include Central and Local Government as well as other public sector organisations.  Ruth trained and worked as a commercial property lawyer and so brings this perspective to help us deliver the best service possible to our clients.

Ruth's remit includes tenders and she works with colleagues across the firm on tendering activities and initiatives.  She also provides a consultancy service for clients, advising and guiding them when they are tendering for contracts.

What our clients and peers say: 

"The communication discussion was thought provoking and fun, and very well received."

Scottish Government Legal Directorate
