Grant Hunter, who heads up BTO’s Dispute Resolution team, commented:

“We are very pleased that Cat is joining BTO. She has built an outstanding reputation as a strong and determined commercial litigator across a number of sectors, with particular specialisms in pursuing financial and negligence claims. Her appointment will certainly enhance BTO’s prominent position in the Scottish dispute resolution market.”

At BTO, Cat will also work closely with fellow litigator and partner Will Cole, who joined the Edinburgh team in 2019.

BTO’s Chairman, David Gibson, who is heavily involved in high level recruitment for the firm, added:

“Cat’s unique blend of experience and skills, gained both at the Bar and in private practice, is highly regarded and we welcome her to BTO most warmly. We know that she will be a tremendous asset to our already outstanding commercial litigation team.”

Cat said of her new appointment:

"I am delighted to be joining such a successful, independent law firm.  BTO has stood out to me over the years as the ideal blend of being long-established and forward thinking. What’s more, it is celebrated for its client service, is well led and has thoroughly decent people.

“I am really looking forward to working with the BTO team which, in my view, successfully combines expert technical skills with pragmatic commerciality, and whose genuine integrity commands impressive staff loyalty."
