Anyone who has met me knows that I am really passionate about MacRoberts and the people who make it the firm it is. We have achieved great success under John Macmillan’s expert watch and we will continue to achieve this through investment, underpinned by exceptional talent and service."
Mr Macmillan added: "Neil Kennedy will be a very fine successor. He has all the right attitude, client and staff focus and MacRoberts’ ethos. The firm will be in very good hands and I was delighted by the strength of the partner support for his appointment. Having been in the MP role for more than 11 of the last 20 years and all of the last three and half, I was sure it was time to hand the role on to a more dynamic and focused individual."
