Peter Murray leads Ledingham Chalmers LLP's practice, which has previously tended to stand out for its work in the oil and gas services sector. The firm recently expanded its offering, however, by launching a new exploration and production practice; this was heralded in January 2018 by the hires of Uisdean Vass  and Laura Petrie  from Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP. Further reflective of the growth of the corporate practice, Natalie Stevenson recently joined as a senior associate from CMS. Elsewhere, in addition to handling corporate and commercial matters connected with oil and gas, the firm’s workload is rounded out by mandates involving sectors such as renewable energy, property, care and leisure. Jody Mitchell, Rod Hutchison and Neil Anderson are other highly regarded practitioners in the group. Malcolm Laing serves as a consultant. Clients in this space include Total E&P UK Limited, Tendeka, Interwell, Arjo Wiggins Fine Papers and University of the Highlands and Islands.

Within: Banking and finance

Ledingham Chalmers LLP's Jody Mitchell is a name to note in the Aberdeen office, which assists lenders with oil and gas sector financing transactions involving borrowers that often have group companies across multiple jurisdictions. The firm's practice is broader than oil and gas sector work, with the marine industry being another driver of mandates. Elsewhere, Fiona Neilson in Inverness has experience of public sector (economic development agency) funding of private sector enterprises, among other areas.
