Part of the firm’s Glasgow team, Denise is an accredited specialist in family law, an accredited family law mediator and an experienced collaborative family lawyer. She is qualified as a solicitor in Scotland and in England and Wales.

Denise’s promotion to the Partnership will further reinforce Gilson Gray as a market leader in the provision of top-quality family law services. Denise has proven herself to be an invaluable addition to the Family Law team and her elevation to Partner demonstrates our commitment to the development of the practice in the West of Scotland and beyond.”

Commenting on her promotion, Denise said: “Becoming a Partner at Gilson Gray has been an ambition of mine since I joined the firm last year. The firm’s ethos, its commitment to its clients and the overriding enthusiasm amongst all its staff is something that sets it apart from other firms and drew me to it. I am truly passionate about the work I do, so to work alongside like-minded colleagues in a Family Law team that has become one of the most highly regarded in Scotland is a real career coup.”
