Interlaw's representative firm in Scotland, Morton Fraser has welcomed partner Sandra Cassels, a specialist contentious construction lawyer. 

Sandra's former colleagues, Julie Scott-Gilroy and Caroline Earnshaw,  joined Morton Fraser's construction team as associates earlier this year, and together with Sandra they will strengthen the firm's existing team of  contentious and non-contentious construction specialists. 

Jonathan Seddon, who heads the firm's construction team, said: "We are very excited that Sandra and her team have decided to join us to add further expertise to our construction team. They are very highly regarded in the market and we have worked on opposing sides from them on a number of deals and disputes and have always had huge respect for them. It is great to now have them here at Morton Fraser as part of our team.”

Innes Clark, who heads the firm's litigation division, said: "Morton Fraser’s litigation team is one of the largest and most experienced in Scotland, with a team of over 50 lawyers. We are delighted to welcome Sandra on board." The new hires further underline the firm’s commitment to a ‘talent first’ strategy, which has underpinned 60 per cent revenue growth over the last five years.
