Legal firm DWF has made three senior promotions in its Scottish offices among a firm-wide round.

Joanna Hamilton and Paul Mason, both real estate specialists, advance from senior associate to partner, reflecting continued investment in growing DWF’s commercial property practice in Scotland. Corporate associate Tom Maxwell becomes a director, a partner-level equivalent role in a team which acts for clients including Capita plc, ScottishPower and Marine Harvest Scotland.

Wayne Lawrence, executive partner of DWF’s Edinburgh office, commented: “Each of these individuals has been instrumental in driving DWF in Scotland forward, not only in terms of their particular legal expertise but also the quality of service they deliver to our clients and positive impact they have on their colleagues. All of those promoted this year exemplify our values and are very much part of the future of DWF, so I’m pleased that we can recognise and reward their commitment to us and look forward to supporting each of them in the next phase of their careers.”
