LAW firm CMS has announced the promotion of five colleagues to the role of Of Counsel.

Construction law specialist Claudia Russell and two further Edinburgh-based colleagues, Kirsty Nurse and Keith Simpson from the firm’s Banking and Finance team have been elevated to the senior position.  They are joined by Jane Fender-Allison and Madeleine Young from CMS’s Glasgow Construction Disputes team, who have also been promoted to Of Counsel level.

These latest promotions follow last month’s appointment of Michael Urquhart, who joined CMS as Of Counsel further bolstering its Banking and Finance team in Edinburgh, and the promotion of six new partners in May.

Allan Wernham, CMS Managing Partner in Scotland said: “We’re delighted to announce these five promotions in Edinburgh and Glasgow into the senior role of Of Counsel. They demonstrate our commitment to on-going career progression for our colleagues and ensure stability and continuity for our clients as we develop talented people across all practice areas of the firm.”
