Edinburgh-headquartered firm McGrigors has handed managing partner Richard Masters a second term at the helm.
Masters, who joined the firm in 1987, first became managing partner at the firm three years ago (21 January 2008).
During his three-year leadership the firm has branched out from its Scottish roots, buying out London litigation boutique Reid Minty (4 August 2008), bulking up its Manchester offering (26 August 2010) and buying out Belfast firm L’Estrange & Brett (28 August 2009).
Masters, who stood uncontested, said in a statement: “The firm’s come a long way over the past few years. We’re playing to our strengths in the energy, infrastructure and professional and financial services sectors, and continuing to develop our reputation for excellence and innovation among our client base.”
