Ross Cameron and Greg Smith

LEGAL services group Ince have announced that Greg Smith and Ross Cameron have joined their team in Scotland. Their appointments reflect the firm’s plans for expansion in Scotland, at all levels of legal seniority.

Greg Smith joins Ince as a Partner, focusing on criminal and regulatory litigation. With a background in defending white collar and regulatory crime at two of Scotland’s largest full-service commercial law firms, Greg established his own successful criminal litigation practice nearly ten years ago.

Greg has significant and wide-ranging experience in all aspects of criminal court work. He has represented clients at every Sheriff Court in Scotland and forged a hard won and nationally recognised reputation for excellence and success at court.

Ross Cameron joins Ince as a Senior Associate, specialising in commercial, construction, and maritime disputes. Previously, he had a lengthy period at Anderson Strathern LLP, one of Scotland’s leading independent law firms, and most recently a spell at the Scottish Government working on a suite of landmark litigation matters.

Ross has considerable experience in commercial and construction disputes, as well as successfully advising both private and public sector clients in high profile, high value, and complex cases. His work has a particular focus on construction law in which he regularly acts for employers and contractors in adjudications and court actions. 

Stefanie Johnston, dual-qualified Partner and Head of Scotland, said:

“We are delighted that Greg and Ross will be joining us in our Scotland office. They can both further bolster our regulatory and real estate service offerings and support our clients throughout the commercial challenges that they are facing.
