Ms McVey joins the Bristol-headquartered legal firm from the Banking & Finance team at Brodies, having previously worked at The Royal Bank of Scotland. She will help develop Burges Salmon’s Scottish banking practice, with particular focus on financial restructurings, leveraged finance, real estate finance and corporate lending.

Her appointment takes to three the firm’s Banking team in Scotland, which also comprises partner Stuart McMillan and solicitor Stephanie Lynch.

Mr McMillan commented: “Amy’s appointment is fantastic news for both our Scottish practice and for the firm. It’s been exciting watching our Edinburgh office grow since its launch in 2019 and to see such successful legal experts bolstering our teams, working to develop and grow existing and new client relationships.”
