Ince celebrates one year since Scotland office opening
We are pleased to be celebrating one year since opening our first Scottish office in the city of Glasgow.
Stefanie Johnston, dual-qualified Partner and Head of Scotland, has worked tirelessly over the last year to develop our offering through the opening of an Ince office in what is arguably an established Scottish market. Starting from the ground up, Stefanie and her team have successfully gained an admirable reputation in the region and further afield in the maritime, insurance, real estate and regulatory sectors.
A year on since opening, our team in Scotland continues to enjoy meeting old and new clients and contacts, and as such we are pleased to let you know of our growth plans, with ongoing expansion in place at all levels of legal seniority.
Reflecting on the first year since opening our Glasgow office, Stefanie Johnston said:
"Building our Scottish offering from scratch has been an exciting challenge and highly rewarding task. Our commitment to our clients with requirements in this jurisdiction is reflected in our rapid progression in Scotland, and I look forward to watching our team and office continue to grow in years to come and deliver excellent legal services to our clients".
Jennette Newman, Managing Partner and Global Head of Insurance, also commented:
"It is a great pleasure to work with Stefanie and the team in Scotland. I am extremely proud of their achievements and the contribution that the Scottish office makes to The Ince Group. The growth plans and opportunities in Scotland are positive for our business and I look forward to exciting times ahead, both for Scotland and The Ince Group".
