With six offices across Scotland, Blackadders LLP is a well-known regional player acting for employers and employees on the full range of employment law; the Edinburgh-based Donna Reynolds complements this offering with a specialism in discrimination law. Director Jack Boyle is often called upon in employment disputes and is based in Dundee together with practice head Simon Allison, who has particular expertise in the construction, manufacturing and transport sectors, while the team as a whole has recently been increasingly active advising GP practices. Due to its partnership with T C Young, the group also provides regular advice to housing associations. In September 2021, its Glasgow office received a boost with the arrival of Stephen Connolly from Miller Samuel Hill Brown Solicitors; he has recently handled various compliance and Covid-19-related HR matters and is also experienced in data protection.
