The Edinburgh office of legal firm Balfour+Manson has added two new associates – one each to its Employment and Commercial Property teams.

Russell Eadie joins the firm as a senior associate in the Employment team. He has worked in employment law for over 25 years, including with Morisons LLP where he was a partner, and more recently at Dentons. He has also worked as a senior solicitor in the Professional Practice Team at the Law Society of Scotland.

In Commercial Law, Stephanie Nichol joins to cover for partner Stephanie Zak who is taking maternity leave. She will remain with the firm when Stephanie Zak returns. Ms Nichol joins from Dentons, where she was a senior associate. She has worked at a senior level within national and international private practice law firms, as well as providing consultancy work including public sector in-house experience. 

Balfour+Manson chairman Elaine Motion commented: “We have hired two very talented legal professionals to further strengthen two of our busiest teams.  Having amassed well over 40 years’ experience between them, our clients will be assured that we strive for continual excellence in seeking out the very best people with the most appropriate skillsets. Both Russell and Stephanie will be an asset to the Employment Law and Commercial teams, and I wholeheartedly welcome them aboard.”
