North-east law firm Stronachs has bolstered its corporate team with the appointment of Ross Gardner as partner.
Gardner has more than 13 years’ experience in corporate and commercial law, having risen from trainee to partner at Raeburn Christie Clark & Wallace after qualifying from the University of Aberdeen.
He said: “Stronachs is a long-established firm with a diverse, multi-sector client base, and a clear plan for growth, which made it the natural choice for me as I look toward the next stage of my career.
“We are all acutely aware of the challenges facing the marketplace, particularly in oil and gas and the associated effects felt in other areas. What the firm has done throughout this year is strengthen its offering to existing clients, and prepare for growth when economic recovery picks up by building on its structure, enhancing its ethos of achieving excellence with the very best support available at every level – and it’s exciting to be part of that team.”
Stronachs managing partner David Rennie added: “Ross is another key addition to our team, bringing considerable experience across the sectors in the north-east, along with a real drive and commitment to business development, which is crucial as we look to meet our future ambitions.”
The Aberdeen-based firm, which has other offices in Inverness and London, now has 19 partners and 115 lawyers and legal support staff.
