Law firm opens new branch in Highland capital
Scottish law firm Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP (WJM) is to open a new office in Beechwood Business Park, Inverness, this month.
The office will be headed by WJM commercial partner Angus MacLeod, a native of the city and a fluent Gaelic speaker.
WJM chairman Colin Brass said: “The breadth of WJM’s services combined with our deep specialisms and a distinctive attitude about what lawyers should do for clients are in tune with the needs of the Highlands and Islands and we are confident that they offer a strong and distinctive proposition.
Mr MacLeod added: “Our existing clients in the Highlands and Islands prove that geography is no barrier to success, but that said there's nothing like having your lawyer literally 'down the road’. My colleagues and I are looking forward to becoming part of the business community here, and we'll be out and about across the region.”
WJM currently has 20 partners and over 80 staff, with offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
