The Apex Hotel hosted Scotland’s specialist litigation law firm Simpson & Marwick as it conducted an employment law conference to mark the expansion of the firm in the city.
The event celebrated the opening of an employment law unit in the firm’s Dundee office and was chaired by Ian Truscott QC, a specialist in the field.
The unit will be led by associate Deborah Inglis, a regular speaker at employment law and HR events who has specialised in the field for more than seven years.
Speakers at the event were Professor Douglas Brodie of Edinburgh University along with Simpson & Marwick’s partners Michael Jones, solicitor advocate and employment law specialist Sandy Kemp and David Hughes, who is also an employment law specialist.
Deborah, who was brought up in Kirriemuir and lives in Carnoustie, said, “Having spent the last six months working with the firm’s employment team in Aberdeen, this was a great way to renew old acquaintances and make new contacts in the local business community.”
Lead partner at the firm’s city office Harry Boyle said, “We are really excited that Deborah has come to join us to continue with the development of the firm’s Dundee office.
“The firm has long recognised the importance of Dundee to its future development and is committed to providing Dundee businesses with the best possible legal representation.”
Head of employment law at Simpson & Marwick Sandy Kemp added, “The strength of the firm’s employment law unit is contained within the skills, knowledge and experience of the individuals in the team, and the recruitment of Deborah exemplifies that.”
