Harper Macleod has named eight newly promoted partners across six of its teams.

Joining the partnership are Natalie Dissake (Debt & Asset Recovery), Amy Walsh (Business Development), Kathleen Martin (Private Client), Marina Harper (Personal Injury), Andrew MacKenzie and Laura McCorquodale (both Dispute Resolution), and Craig Ramsay and Paul Macdonald (both Corporate).

The appointments take the firm's partner total to 74, 43% of them female. 

Firm chairman Professor Lorne Crerar CBE commented: "It is always a matter of great satisfaction to see promotions from within the firm and wonderful to watch people who have been with us for much of their career progress through to this stage, with three of them beginning their careers as trainees with the firm. So I am delighted to welcome these colleagues as fellow partners of Harper Macleod."

He added: "For more than 30 years we have been a place of opportunity for young lawyers and it is a testament to the strength we have created that we can continue to do that even in times such as these. Our partnership complement is the strongest that it has ever been and all eight who are making the step up are not only talented solicitors but great colleagues who promote a positive culture within and outwith the firm. I know that they will contribute greatly to the success of our clients, and therefore the firm, in the years to come."

In the past year the firm has been accredited as Gold Investors in Young People and reaccredited as Investors in People, as well as achieving success in the Scottish Apprentice Awards and the Flexibility Works Employer Awards.
