WBD appoints Chris McLauchlan and Ewelina Kurek in Edinburgh
Womble Bond Dickinson (WBD) has made appointments to its banking and real estate teams in Edinburgh.
Chris McLauchlan has been appointed as a legal director to lead WBD’s banking team in Scotland. Joining from Eversheds Sutherland, he is a senior banking lawyer with over 15 years of experience advising on Scottish, English and cross-border transactions.
Ewelina Kurek has joined as an associate in the real estate team. Previously at Shepherd and Wedderburn, she has over seven years’ experience advising national and international clients operating in a variety of markets including office, industrial, retail and investment.
WBD last year celebrated its move to larger offices in Edinburgh following a period of growth as well as a series of senior hires including financial services partner and UK head Jonny Williams, legal director Caroline Stevenson (financial services), and managing associates Lisa Dromgoole (construction) and Natasha Brownlee (financial services).
John Ralph, partner and head of WBD’s Edinburgh office, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Chris and Ewelina to the firm, continuing the growth of our fast-growing Edinburgh office and broadening the range of services available to our clients here in Scotland.”
