MSI's UK law firm member Thorntons has announced four new senior promotions.
Leading Scottish law firm Thorntons has strengthened its team by announcing four new senior promotions.
Susan Duff, Michelle Adam, Amanda Wilson and Debbie Fellows have been promoted to Partners at Thorntons, having previously been associates at the firm. The promotions will consolidate Thorntons’ position as one of Scotland’s top performing businesses, building on a year in which both turnover and profits increased. They also represent a significant step towards achieving gender equality amongst the most senior staff at Thorntons, with females now representing 40 per cent of Partners at the firm.
The new partners’ areas of expertise reflect Thorntons’ diverse service offering to private and business clients and their wide geographic spread. Scott Milne, Joint Managing Partner in Thorntons, said: “All four new Partners are highly experienced and respected figures and their promotions are well deserved.
“This role will allow such experienced and highly capable people to collaborate with the Partnership to drive the business forward and further enhance our service for clients.”
Last year, the firm climbed 33 places to eighth in this year’s prestigious Business Insider SME 300 table following a year in which both turnover and profits grew. Figures released earlier this year revealed that Thorntons’ turnover increased by £3.7million as the business continued to expand.
As one of Scotland's largest full service law firms we have 56 partners, 166 Solicitors and almost 500 staff. We provide a wide range of specialist services with 18 Law Society of Scotland accredited specialists, 3 Solicitor Advocates and cross-border working with 7 dual-qualified solicitors.
