Head of Dispute Resolution, McKee Campbell Morrison

The corporate social responsibility project I am most proud of at MCM is … our use of technology to provide a hybrid working model, thus significantly reducing the office carbon footprint and assisting a better work/life balance for staff.

The misconception about my role/sector I would most like to change is … that lawyers are often considered very combative.  While that can be required, we exist, in the main, to assist clients to reach a suitable resolution in any legal issue.

The career achievement I am most proud of is … setting up the firm in the middle of a global pandemic and providing a platform for professionals to thrive in their careers.

The most important career advice I would give to my younger self is … not to do what everyone else does, just because that is how it has always been done.

My favourite part of Glasgow is … Panang in St. Vincent Street - just can't get enough of the Thai street food.

The city around the world that reminds me most of Glasgow is … Newcastle;  very similar people, culture and architecture.

Outside of work, I am passionate about … grassroots sport.

My first ever job was … Davie Cooper's paper boy and the most valuable lesson I learned doing it was … an early start and hard work gets you far in life.
