ANGUS EASTON, who has many years of experience in marine and commercial shipping work advising clients on charter parties, ship sales and purchases, joint ventures and fisheries law, has been promoted to Partner within the Marine Commercial Team.

GREGOR SIM, previously a Partner with James & George Collie, has been promoted to Partner from Senior Associate in the firm’s property department, specialising in rural, residential and private client work.

PAMELA BURSILL, who has almost 30 years experience in residential property work advising clients on Deeside and beyond, joined Mackinnons in 2021 and has now been promoted to Partner in the busy and fast expanding property team.

Pat Gray, one of the firm’s senior partners, said;

“I am delighted to welcome Angus, Gregor and Pamela as Partners in Mackinnons and congratulate them on their well deserved promotions. The trio of new Partner appointments is further evidence of our investment in first rate legal talent and ability as Mackinnons continue to focus on supporting our clients by delivering premium legal advice, guidance and reassurance.

The new generation of lawyers coming through the firm are extremely capable, hard working, and most importantly, share the same values as those who have gone before them. We see a positive, strong and successful future ahead and look forward to working with our three new Partners and to taking the firm to even greater places in the years to come.”
