Two jobs at Dentons in Scotland face being lost, as the law firm starts a UK-wide redundancy consultation.

The positions, in the Scottish real estate department, could be axed along with jobs in London and Milton Keynes.

Dentons said it was also looking to create four new roles in energy, transport and infrastructure and it added that it was its “intention to continue to invest in our Scottish operations”.

The firm has begun a redundancy consultation as it forms a team that will work from home permanently.

The jobs of lawyers in London and Milton Keynes in the real estate, energy, transport and infrastructure and non-contentious construction practices are also under threat. Three to five roles will also be relocated to Scotland.
