Anderson Strathern LLP has appointed Murray McCall as its new Managing Partner.  He will take up office on 1 September, when current Managing Partner Andy Lothian steps down after five years to return to a client-facing role.

After graduating from the University of Glasgow with a First Class Honours degree, Murray began to specialise in Employment Law early in his career.  He became a partner in Anderson Strathern eight years ago and has been instrumental in establishing and expanding the firm’s Glasgow office.  He has served on its strategic board and has been a senior member of the management team for the last few years.  He has a fantastic track record in winning significant new work for the firm as well as managing key client relationships.

Chairman Robert Carr said:

“In Andy’s time as Managing Partner the firm has followed a sustained path of profitable growth.  Revenue, net profits and PEP have all increased considerably, and our balance sheet is stronger.  We have seen a number of notable hires and acquisitions, and key client wins too numerous to mention.  We’re grateful to Andy for all his achievements, and delighted that Murray has been appointed as Andy’s successor.  He will bring energy and dynamism to the role and will undoubtedly build on the strong foundations the firm has.”

Murray McCall said:

“I am delighted to have been chosen to take the firm forward at this exciting time in the legal market.  Andy has provided us with an excellent platform from which we can continue to invest in the business and benefit all our clients by offering new and improved services. Using the considerable talents and energy of all our people, we are well placed to capitalise on the upturn in the market; aiming high and providing excellence in all that we do.”
