Law firm Pinsent Masons has promoted four Scottish lawyers to become legal directors
Edinburgh based Pamela Gilmor will make the step-up from senior associate level with her Glasgow colleagues Susannah Donaldson, Elaine MacGregor and Katherine Metcalfe.
Pamela Gilmour is experienced in advising lenders and corporates in all aspects of banking and finance, including structured real estate finance, acquisition finance and general corporate finance transactions.
Susannah Donaldson is an employment law specialist with a strong focus on complex employment litigation, discrimination and gender equality issues.
Elaine MacGregor advises on investment funds and has wide ranging experience in private equity, real estate, debt finance and infrastructure deals.
And Katherine Metcalfe is a litigator specialising in advice on health and safety, fire safety and environmental matters.
Richard Masters, Pinsent Masons Chairman for Scotland and Northern Ireland, said: “Congratulations to all four new legal directors who each make a significant contribution to our Scottish offering and to our clients working internationally.
“We have a diverse range of skilled lawyers, innovators and progressive thinkers at Pinsent Masons and all of them play an important role in delivering legal services to our clients.
“As a business we have long focused on creating an inclusive environment that enables everyone to work towards their aspirations and these promotions reflect this ethos.”
In the last 12 months Pinsent Masons has opened an office in Frankfurt, its third office in Germany, launched the Mindful Business Charter with Barclays and Addleshaw Goddard to help reduce unnecessary stress in the workplace, and been named Stonewall’s most LGBT-inclusive employer in the UK.
Moreover, over 60% of its UK offices are now designed exclusively for agile working.
