Led by Inverness-based Kirk Tudhope, Ledingham Chalmers LLP is well placed to act for employers, and to a lesser extent employees, in the Highland and Island region but the team also has a presence in Edinburgh. Much of its work is in the contentious space and frequently pertains to discrimination and unfair dismissal claims.
