“I look forward to helping them further build on the strength of Gilson Gray’s family law team.”


Cunniff welcomed Loudon’s appointment, and also looked at the family law team’s progress. “This year alone, we have seen the elevation of Sally Nash to partner and have been joined by Denise Laverty and Sarah Feeney in Glasgow.

“To now be able to announce Alasdair’s appointment as a consultant is hugely exciting and demonstrates the firm’s commitment to the team and the work we do.”

Gilson Gray now has about 150 staff members in offices across Edinburgh, Glasgow and East Lothian.

The organisation has described its 2014 debut as one of the ­largest-ever launches of a law firm in Scotland, taking its name from private client lawyer Glen Gilson, previously of HBJ Gateley, and Matthew Gray, formerly of Pagan Osborne.
