Law firm announces raft of staff promotions

4th October 2021

A number of promotions have been announced across Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP’s offices in Scotland as three solicitors climb the ranks.

Planning expert Nicola Martin, who is based in the firm’s Edinburgh office, is stepping up to the role of Partner. Nicola, who is dual qualified, specialises in advising on residential and renewable energy projects, helping clients to address issues relating to all aspects of the development consenting regime.

Stephen Grant, who works in the corporate team at WJM’s Glasgow office, has been promoted to Senior Associate. Stephen supports clients on all corporate and commercial aspects of operating a business – from the initial start-up or purchase to the drafting of bespoke commercial documents such as website terms and conditions and distribution agreements.

Meanwhile Amy McDougall, who works across the firm’s Glasgow and Edinburgh bases, takes up the role of Senior Solicitor. Amy works closely with the firm’s planning team, focusing largely on renewables projects and planning consents.

Fraser Gillies, Managing Partner at Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP, said: “I’m proud to announce our latest round of promotions at WJM.

Nicola, Stephen and Amy have all worked exceptionally hard to develop their chosen specialisms and build strong relationships with their clients. They have shown great dedication to the firm and to their own personal development and their achievements deserve to be recognised and celebrated.

Career development of our people continues to be a high priority at WJM. We’re committed to nurturing talent and ensuring we have the strongest team offering for our clients.”
