Three made up at McGrigors as Gray departs for Eversheds

Scottish-headquartered firm McGrigors has made up three partners across its UK network a week after it emerged that former managing partner Colin Gray is to leave the firm for a fee-earning role at Eversheds.

Martin Ewan has been promoted to the corporate practice ;in ;Aberdeen, Rosalie Mackay joins the corporate partnership in Glasgow and David Anderson becomes a tax litigation partner based between the London and Manchester offices. All three will take up their new roles on 1 October.

Firmwide managing partner Richard Masters said: “These promotions reflect the areas where we are experiencing real growth. The energy sector is going really well and both corporate lawyers are focused on it.”

Masters added that with Anderson spending around half his time in Manchester, the focus of the office, which has so far been on infrastructure, has widened.

Last week the firm, which is carrying out a redundancy consultation with a small number of London staff, announced that Gray and banking partner Colin McKay are to join Eversheds.
