Partners at law firm Brodies have unanimously re-elected Bill Drummond as managing partner for a seventh three-year term.
Drummond, who has been with the firm for 35 years, was first elected to the role in 1998. Under his tenure, profits at Brodies – which has offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Brussels – have risen from £2.5 million to £27.1m.
Brodies chairman Christine O’Neill said: “Bill’s longevity as managing partner is a reflection of his considerable achievements over the past 17 years, and the faith that the partnership places in him to continue to build on Brodies’ success and to maintain an unremitting focus on delivering the high quality and relevant legal services that our clients expect.”
Drummond was chairman of the Scottish Council for Development & Industry (SCDI) until February last year, when he was succeeded by BT Scotland director Brendan Dick.
