Legal firm Anderson Strathern has promoted Catriona Miller, head of its Haddington office, to partner.

Ms Miller, who has led the practice's East Lothian arm for the last two of her 13 years with Anderson Strathern, works in private client and has 22 years of experience in advising on succession planning, wealth protection and tax planning, powers of attorney and care of the elderly.

Her promotion also reflects increased workload for the private client team, which numbers more than 50 following growth in 2015.

Head of team, Colin Henderson, commented: ”Catriona has taken the East Lothian practice from strength to strength and her promotion is thoroughly deserved.”
