Law firm appoints new partner

Burges Salmon Edinburgh office

LAW firm Burges Salmon has appointed a new partner as it celebrates the first anniversary of its Edinburgh office.

UK employment law specialist, Katie Russell, becomes the firms fifth partner appointment in the capital base.

The past year has seen a number of key client successes for 20-strong team advising on a number of significant transactions across a range of sectors and for high-profile clients such as Europe’s largest renewable energy producer Statkraft, leading timber producer BSW Timber Limited, private equity firm Inverleith LLP, and the Atlas Hotels group, part of the L+R Hotels portfolio.

Burges Salmon has also forged partnerships with some of the most significant institutions in Scotland, including being appointed to the legal services panels of both the Scottish Professional Football League and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).

Roger Bull, Burges Salmon’s managing partner, said“In the current climate, I’m only too aware of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and will continue for some time to have, on all businesses.

“However, we are continuing to look positively to the future and make prudent investments for the benefit of our clients. The arrival of new employment partner Katie Russell is a great example of this forward-looking approach.”
