Blackadders bolsters award-winning team with new Partner

Posted: 5th November 2018

Firm also welcomes new Associate Solicitor

National law firm Blackadders has bolstered its award-winning Employment Law team with the appointment of Donna Reynolds as a Partner.

Donna, who will be based primarily in the firm’s Edinburgh office, has 15 years of experience and is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in her field. Donna will help drive the growth of the team and the wider business as well as enhance the service Blackadders offers its clients. Donna has advised both employees and employers on a wide variety of issues and has a niche in discrimination law.

The firm’s Corporate and Commercial team has also welcomed Suzi Low as an Associate Solicitor. Suzi, who is Dundee based, previously worked in the finance team of an international law firm and advises on a full range of corporate work, including M&A, investment rounds, corporate restructurings and banking and finance.

Campbell Clark, Head of Blackadders’ Business Services Group, said: “Securing lawyers of Donna and Suzi’s calibre will help us to sustain the strong growth we are experiencing in both Employment and Corporate. They both share the values that are the foundation of the firm’s success. Given their excellent pedigree, I am in no doubt Donna and Suzi will enhance the service we deliver.

“Both work in high-pressure areas of law and it is important our clients know they have access to the very best experts in their field. We are confident that’s what they are getting with Donna, Suzi and their respective teams.”

Blackadders won the Excellence in Client Care award at the 2017 Scottish Legal Awards. The Employment Team were also finalists at the 2018 ceremony in the Innovation in Practice Award for their acclaimed podcast, Employment Lawyer in Your Pocket (#ELiYP).

As well as Edinburgh and Dundee, Blackadders has offices in Aberdeen, Arbroath, Forfar, Glasgow and Perth. Donna’s appointment takes the firm’s headcount to 218, including 26 Partners.
