Law firm adds two new partners to construction group

David Wilson

MACROBERTS has strengthened its construction group with the appointment of two new partners.

David Wilson, who has been with the law firm for 16 years, was previously a director within the construction group. MacRoberts said he has “extensive expertise” in advising clients in construction disputes, and pursuing and defending parties in construction disputes. David will be based in Glasgow, but will also work across the firm’s other offices in Edinburgh and Dundee.

Gavin Thomson

The other new partner is Gavin Thomson, who is returning to MacRoberts from Pinsent Masons. He previously spent 14 years at MacRoberts, latterly as senior associate. He is accredited as a specialist in construction law by the Law Society of Scotland. Gavin will be based in Edinburgh, but will also work across the firm’s other offices.

John Macmillan, managing partner at MacRoberts said, “MacRoberts is a recognised leader in construction law with very strong links to the construction sector. The promotion of David and the return of Gavin is great news for the firm and our clients. They add yet further talent and experience to our construction team at partner level.”
