Leading Scottish law firm, Stronachs, continues to grow in Aberdeen with the appointment of a new partner, Mark Brady.
Mr Brady who joins the firm’s corporate team, specialises in banking and finance.
Managing partner, David Rennie, said: “Following a strong 2014 for the firm, with a string of enviable deals completed, I am delighted that the firm continues to demonstrate its commitment to growth, with Mark being the fifth senior lateral hire of late.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Brady said: “I am delighted to be joining Stronachs. Our strong corporate and energy teams and well-established market presence provide a great platform for an enhanced banking and finance offering. 2015 will be an interesting year, within a changing market which is bound to present opportunities and I believe we are well positioned at the firm to assist our clients to take advantage of these.”
Mark will work closely with Neil Forbes, partner in the corporate team.
Mr Forbes added: “Mark has a strong reputation as a banking lawyer in Aberdeen and beyond and brings valuable expertise and a capability to the firm which complements our existing specialisms.
“Mark joins at an exciting time for the firm. The last twelve months have been an extremely busy period for us and we saw the year conclude with successful completions on a number of high profile transactions including the sale of UTEC International Limited to Acteon Group and the sale of Scopus Engineering to AMEC Foster Wheeler. As a firm we remain committed to providing our clients with a high quality, cost effective service and believe that the appointment of individuals of the calibre of Mark and other recent additions including Eric Gilligan, a partner in our employment team, and Callum Murray, a senior associate in our corporate team will enable us to continue to do this.”
Stronachs LLP, which has offices in Aberdeen, London and Inverness, is now one of the few independent law firms owned, managed and operated from the north-east of Scotland providing legal and commercial advice across the UK and on an international basis.
