Burges Salmon has marked the first anniversary of the launch of its Edinburgh office with the appointment of a fifth partner in Scotland.


Dual-qualified employment law specialist Katie Russell has joined the firm from Shepherd & Wedderburn, where she was a partner. She joins a team which also has expertise in corporate finance, planning, real estate and banking. 


Roger Bull, Burges Salmon’s managing partner, commented: "The launch of our Edinburgh office has cemented the firm’s trusted reputation in the Scottish market, underpinning our strong market position and enhancing our capacity to provide wide-ranging sector advice across the UK.

"Since the opening of our Scottish office, it’s been fantastic to see the team continue to grow and report significant successes for our clients in its first year. In the current climate, I’m only too aware of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and will continue for some time to have, on all businesses. However, we are continuing to look positively to the future and make prudent investments for the benefit of our clients."
