Anderson Strathern makes strategic partner and director hires

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve hired Tom McEntegart as a Partner in our Glasgow office in order to boost our SME and commercial client offering across Scotland and the rest of the UK. He brings over two decades of experience in advising SMEs and corporates on banking, property, licensing and commercial disputes, and joins from UK law firm TLT where he was previously its Location Head for Scotland, having overseen Anderson Fyfe’s merger with TLT in 2012.

Tom, a University of Strathclyde law graduate, was admitted as a solicitor advocate in 2003, and is a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors-accredited Evaluative Mediator. As a Partner, he will support, develop, and help to expand our Dispute Resolution team, while working alongside other areas of the firm, including the Employment, Banking, and Corporate teams.

Bruce Farquhar, our Chair, said:

“Tom is a great hire for the firm, both in terms of his commercial dispute experience and his track record in building high-performing teams within a UK-wide law firm.”

Tom said:

“Anderson Strathern is an independent Scottish law firm with a modern approach, great people, talented lawyers, and a fantastic client base, and I look forward to playing an active part in the firm’s continuing success.”

In a separate hire, Mark Templeton has joined the firm as a Director and Head of Immigration. Mark moves from specialist immigration law firm Quinn, Martin & Langan, and will work alongside existing team members to grow the firm’s immigration practice.

Murray McCall, our Managing Partner said:

“Mark has worked in immigration law for many years, and is a well-known and much respected lawyer in a specialist area that is growing significantly post-Brexit. We see a lot of demand in this area, for both businesses and private individuals and it’s another important hire for the firm and for our clients.”
