Law firm Anderson Strathern has hired corporate specialist Euan Tripp from Brodies, with Mr Tripp being brought in as a partner in a move that strengthens the firm’s corporate and commercial offering.

Mr Tripp brings extensive M&A and corporate finance experience including from the property and hotels sectors, in Scotland and across the UK. Recognised as a “recommended individual” in the Legal 500 in 2018, he graduated from the University of Aberdeen before starting his career in law at Biggart Baillie (now DWF).

Anderson Strathern chair, Bruce Farquhar, said: “Euan is a highly rated corporate lawyer, well known for his astute and pragmatic approach, with a fantastic network across the UK and internationally. We’re really happy to have him on board as we look to further build out our corporate and commercial team. Euan’s specific expertise in the property and hotels sectors in particular is a real plus for us.”

Mr Tripp said: “Anderson Strathern is recognised as having a real focus on Scotland’s SME market and we think there is great potential to extend the firm’s reach in Scotland and across the rest of the UK. The firm has an excellent name in the market and I look forward to working alongside Bruce and the rest of the team while helping to build on the firm’s reputation in the years ahead.”

In March, the firm’s Brexit Group released its white paper - Taking the temperature of Scottish business pre-Brexit - which revealed that many of Scotland’s companies, particularly SMEs, had made little or no plan for Brexit, while a majority of respondents were concerned about the loss of EU staff. The firm’s Brexit Group is actively advising both SMEs and larger organisations in preparation for the event of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.

In June, Anderson Strathern was selected as the first Scottish legal firm by the Meritas global network that numbers over 180 firms from over 90 countries worldwide. Earlier this month, the firm joined angel syndicate Equity Gap and made its first investment in Glasgow-headquartered Energy sector instrumentation specialist Synaptec.

In December, the firm reported increased turnover of £22.8 million for the year to 31st August 2018 while reporting profits up by 10 per cent.
