DLA reinforces Scottish construction team

The move comes as DLA Piper rebuilds its Scottish ­presence following the departure of a number of partners ­formerly of ­legacy firm Bird Semple in 2008.

These included two from the ­construction team and Scottish managing partner ­Gordon ­Hollerin. The construction practice now boasts six lawyers.

Simon Rae, the current managing partner for Scotland, said: “Gary has a fantastic track record in the construction and engineering sector and will add further weight to our team in Scotland.”
