Law firm Morton Fraser has announced the promotion of three senior associates to partner.
Donna Brennan (private cllient, Glasgow), Amy Entwistle (commercial property, Edinburgh) and Bev Wood (banking & asset finance, Edinburgh) are made up with effect from 3 November.
Morton Fraser said the promotions marked the success of its commitment to ensuring that career development and flexible working arrangements are not mutually exclusive.
Chief executive Chris Harte commented: “We have a strong pool of talent within the firm and it's hugely encouraging to be able to promote from our own ranks in these key practice areas. These promotions also clearly demonstrate that choosing to work flexibly is no obstacle to succeeding at Morton Fraser. We see this as a key factor in ensuring we can retain our best talent. Like any growing business, a mixture of nurturing home-grown talent and introducing new hires into the firm gives us a wealth of experience and innovation and new thinking."
The promotions will take Morton Fraser's partner strength to 46, of whom 14 are women.
