Scottish solicitor practice Morton Fraser has been named as one of the Top 100 UK Companies in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2019, published yesterday.

Employing over 270 people in its Edinburgh and Glasgow offices, Morton Fraser is the only Scottish law firm in the UK-wide list, which aims to showcase excellence in workplace engagement. It is joined in the list by eight practices from south of the border.

Last year Morton Fraser introduced a formal "agile working" policy as part of a wider focus on employee wellbeing and organisational flexibility. This involved the firm breaking down traditional notions of legal practice in order to offer its staff greater choice about where and when they work.

Chairman Maggie Moodie commented: "Collectively we’re extremely proud of this achievement and I am delighted that our people feel Morton Fraser is a great place to work. Few law firms take the steps we have to embed change in our working culture and this recognition is a vindication of the environment we’ve strived to create across the firm."
