01 May, 2013
Dundas & Wilson has announced today (May 1 2013) that it has promoted 10 senior associates to its partnership.
Dundas & Wilson is a major UK law firm, with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and London. The promotions, which will take effect from May 1, will further strengthen its financial services, insolvency, corporate, construction, transport, banking, employment and real estate teams.
The promotion of seven female partners means that the firm has one of the highest proportions of female partners of any UK law firm.
Caryn Penley and Allan Wernham, managing partners of Dundas & Wilson, said:
“Each of our new partners brings a commitment to generating new ideas, a determined focus on value and a real desire to continue to provide clients with exceptional service.
“Each has been with the firm for most if not all of their professional career and the promotion of so many new partners demonstrates the talent and quality within Dundas & Wilson.
“We are excited to work with them as we reinforce our pre-eminent position in the Scottish legal market.
“It is our strength in Scotland that helps drive our growth throughout the UK, and we look forward to seeing their enthusiasm and expertise support our growth in the years to come.”
Laurence Ward, chairman of Dundas & Wilson, said: “I’m very proud to welcome this next generation of talented people to the partnership. They have all made significant long-term contributions to the firm and have a deep understanding of the markets within which our clients operate.
“Our new partners represent a huge investment in the future of our firm. I believe this demonstrates that our firm’s commitment to flexibility and our approach to creating a law firm for the future is working for our people, our business and most importantly our clients.”
