A number of promotions have been announced across Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie's offices in Scotland as three solicitors climb the ranks.

Planning expert Nicola Martin, who is based in Edinburgh, is stepping up to the role of Partner. Nicola, who is dual qualified, specialises in advising on residential and renewable energy projects, helping clients to address issues relating to all aspects of the development consenting regime.

Stephen Grant, who works in the corporate team in Glasgow, has been promoted to Senior Associate. Stephen supports clients on all corporate and commercial aspects of operating a business – from the initial start-up or purchase to the drafting of bespoke commercial documents such as website terms and conditions and distribution agreements.

Meanwhile Amy McDougall, who works across both Glasgow and Edinburgh, takes up the role of Senior Solicitor. Amy works closely with the firm’s planning team, focusing largely on renewables projects and planning consents.

Fraser Gillies, Managing Partner at Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP, said: “I’m proud to announce our latest round of promotions at WJM.
