Employment lawyer Musab Hemsi has joined Anderson Strathern as a director.

Mr Hemsi joins from Glasgow firm LexLeyton, where he was a partner. An accredited specialist and holder of the Signet Accreditation in employment law, he is a member of the European Employment Lawyers Association, chair of the Scottish Discrimination Law Association, and a former guest lecturer on employment law and tribunal litigation at Glasgow Caledonian University.

Partner and department manager of Anderson Strathern's Employment team, Chris McDowall, commented: “Musab is a fantastic addition to the team. Not only is he a top class employment lawyer, he builds great relationships with clients and potential clients alike. His proven track record in attracting and advising corporates and SMEs means he will be a great asset.”

Murray McCall, managing partner, Anderson Strathern added: “Employment law has had to move in check with an exceptional time of change over the last couple of years. In the face of legislative changes, the pandemic, Brexit, the importance of employee wellbeing, technological transformation, and all the thinking around the future of work, there has never been such a multitude of factors and trends to consider as an employment lawyer, and indeed for employers and employees themselves. Getting Musab on board is a fantastic addition for the firm, coming at a time when we are seeing a big uptick in activity for the team.”
