Paris Executive Search

MacRoberts is one of Scotland’s leading independent law firms with over 150 years of experience in the legal sector. Historically, MacRoberts started as a strong private client firm in the west of Scotland (and still retains that uninterrupted heritage today with a well-respected and busy private client practice in Glasgow). Until recently, it had focused its private client practice in the west but following the growth of the family law team in Edinburgh from a standing start in 2014 and the strategic acquisition of the well-respected Edinburgh based Murray Snell business in early 2019, it now has an excellent platform on which to build its private client practice in Edinburgh. This investment in the Private Client team in Edinburgh means that the Edinburgh based Family Law team is now ranked in both Chambers and Legal 500 and won Family Law Team of the Year at the Scottish Legal Awards in 2020.


The firm is now looking to expand the Private Client offering to ensure succession planning is properly catered for whilst additionally ensuring the firm’s growth ambitions are met and current client portfolio looked after. The new Private Client Partner will take a key role in the development and evolution of the Private Client business offering in the Edinburgh Office. Edinburgh, as Scotland’s capital city and financial centre, has huge potential for business growth and MacRoberts is seeking a Partner to take a prominent role in growing this service line.


With a strong and credible team in the West of Scotland, coupled with the legacy reputation of Murray Snell in the East and the strength of the Family Law practice, this Partner appointment offers a genuinely unique opportunity to join an established offering with clear ambitions, a strong platform and a commitment to grow. It also provides direct access to the Managing Partner and a peer group of highly accomplished legal experts. The firm has created an incredibly collaborative and welcoming environment whereby everyone has a “voice”. Leaders are encouraged to be dynamic and entrepreneurial in style, be creative with new innovations, and to drive excellence in the market.
