LAW firm Maclay Murray & Spens (MMS) has unveiled 13 internal promotions, including two new partners.
David Cruickshank, who heads the firm’s renewables energy practice, becomes a partner in the capital projects group, while Ross Nicol, an intellectual property specialist and life sciences lawyer, becomes a partner in the IP and technology division.
Joining the line-up at MMS, which has offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London, are five new associates and a further six senior solicitors.
Chief executive Chris Smylie said: “David and Ross, as well as the 11 solicitors, have all achieved considerable success in their respective areas and we are delighted to recognise their commitment, talent and focus.”
MMS hired seven former Semple Fraser partners in March. This team has subsequently been strengthened with the hire of four former colleagues.
