Brodies LLP, Scotland's largest law firm, today announces the appointment of Tony Jones KC, who joins the firm as a partner in its advocacy unit.

Jones took Silk in 2017 and is one of only three practising civil solicitor advocate KCs in Scotland. A commercial litigator, his experience includes handling disputes in the contracts, construction, insolvency, real estate and intellectual property fields.

Stephen Goldie, Head of Litigation at Brodies said: "Tony's appointment underpins our commitment to providing a market-leading litigation practice. With strength in depth, we provide a full service on contentious issues from instigation to final determination or resolution, which is relevant to individuals, businesses and the public sector as well as delivering increased choice of representation to clients.

"Tony's skills and experience will complement those of our current solicitor advocates, who include Brodies' Chairman Christine O'Neill, partners Laura McMillan and Malcolm Mackay and associates Niall McLean and Craig Watt. The skills and drive Tony has shown to earn the recognition of KC will be invaluable."

Brodies' Managing Partner, Nick Scott added: "Our litigation practice set out in its strategic plan to create a holistic service, which gives clients greater choice of representation in every forum. Tony's appointment is part of the delivery of that strategy and we are confident our clients will benefit from Tony's decision to join our firm."

Jones' appointment brings the number of partners at Brodies to 98. The firm has more than 640 people working across its offices in Aberdeen, Dingwall, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Brussels.
