Morton Fraser has made five new appointments this month.

Chris Clarkson, a commercial real estate specialist, joins as a legal director from Burness Paull. He advises clients on a range of real estate transactions, including lease management, acquisitions and disposals, property finance and secured lending.

Senior associates Alastair Johnston and Sofia Crolla have joined the litigation division to support the growing demand from clients for advice on contentious construction claims, and in personal injury claims.

Further hires include Alan Burns, who joins as an associate in the firm’s in-demand agricultural and rural property team and Emma Wright, who joins as a senior solicitor in the private client division.

Chris Harte, chief executive of Morton Fraser, said: “Investing in our people is fundamental to our continued success. Our focus on talent sets us apart in the legal market, and ensures that our clients benefit from having access to the best legal advice available.

“In recent months, we have invested in new technology to make hybrid working more efficient and new offices in Glasgow designed for collaborative working, as well as growing our staff bonus pool by 50% versus the last financial year.

“We are delighted that this investment is attracting so many talented legal specialists to choose Morton Fraser as the place to progress their careers.”
