Davidson Chalmers Stewart has promoted two of its solicitors to partner in its Edinburgh office and made a further appointment by lateral hire for its office in Glasgow.

Nicola Scott, a commercial property and renewable projects specialist, joins from Brodies to lead and build the firm's Commercial Property team in Glasgow. She also has experience as an in-house counsel at SSE, advising on property law aspects of wind and hydro projects, along with governance and regulatory matters. 

In Edinburgh, Arveen Arabshahi, a corporate law specialist, has been promoted to partner along with Magnus Miller, a key member of the Dispute Resolution team.

Mr Arabshahi joined Davidson Chalmers Stewart as a trainee in 2012 and has developed a wealth of experience in corporate and commercial transactions. Mr Miller joined the firm in 2013 and has since gained in-depth experience advising on real estate and commercial litigation as well as insolvency, debt recovery, professional negligence, regulatory matters and judicial reviews.

Managing partner Andrew Chalmers commented: “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Nicola to the firm as a new partner and to celebrate the highly merited promotions to partner of Arveen and Magnus.

“These appointments strengthen our client offering across three of the firm’s core business areas in Edinburgh and Glasgow. It’s exciting to be able to promote from within and attract new young talent to drive the sustainable growth of the firm which continues at pace.”
