Scottish law firm announces new employment division and new senior appointment following strong year

Laura McKenna

MCKEE Campbell Morrison (MCM) has appointed employment law specialist and mediator Laura McKenna to head the firm’s newly launched employment law and HR division.   

Laura joins from Morton Fraser LLP’s highly regarded employment law team, where she worked with a variety of private and public sector clients across a range of sectors.

Her wealth of legal experience includes negotiating and resolving complex disputes, representing clients at employment tribunal hearings and general advisory work on contracts, exits, redundancies and business transfers. 

Laura said: “I’m looking forward to working with the team at MCM with a view to complementing their existing offering to clients.  I am keen to get to know clients and their specific business objectives in order to offer tailored advice to help them achieve those objectives as efficiently as possible.  This will be a key focus for the new division.”

MCM was founded in early 2021 by Stacy Campbell, Maureen McKee Matheson, Fraser Morrison and Alan McKee.  Since then it has grown significantly – more than doubling its headcount with 14 fee earners now working across a range of specialisms – including commercial and residential property, corporate, litigation, and private client.   

Fraser Morrison, Managing Director and Head of Corporate at MCM, said: “It’s fantastic to have Laura on board.  We are delighted to be in a position to launch this new offering and Laura’s experience in the employment sector will add huge value to the excellent service we already offer to our clients.”

“We’ve built up a strong client portfolio in the last year and we know there’s a real and growing need for specialist employment law advice, so I’m certain Laura’s appointment will be well received by our existing clients.  I look forward to watching the division strengthen and grow in the coming months and years.”
