Shepherd and Wedderburn has further strengthened its employment team with the addition of two senior lawyers.

Morag Hutchison has rejoined the firm as a Partner after training at Shepherd and Wedderburn and spending a number of years in the employment team in the early part of her career.

Morag, who has specialised in employment law for over 20 years, 10 of which as a partner, has experience in advising clients in a number of Shepherd and Wedderburn’s key sectors including Energy, House Building, Financial Services, Hospitality & Leisure and Food & Drink.

Morag commented: “It feels really special to get the opportunity to return to the employment team at Shepherd and Wedderburn to work with Neil Maclean and his colleagues. They are a brilliant team, and I am really excited about joining them.”

Morag’s arrival follows the recent appointment of Laura Macdonald, who brings with her over 15 years of experience in both contentious and non-contentious employment matters for both employers and employees.

Andrew Blain, Managing Partner commented, ‘We are delighted to have Morag and Laura join our employment practice. Their arrival enhances our platform and capability to meet the evolving needs of our clients.”
