Increasing demand north of the border has led a commercial firm to expand its IT, intellectual property, law and Internet department. Glasgow-based commercial firm MacRoberts has recruited a recently-qualified solicitor for its Glasgow office and an associate solicitor for its Edinburgh office. Neither has been named.

MacRoberts is one of only a few Scottish law firms to have developed an IT and IP team with lawyers working solely on these matters.
