International law firm Pinsent Masons has announced the promotion of three partners in Scotland.

Glasgow-based Nick Carlin, who started at the firm as a trainee 12 years ago and is an expert in procurement and supply chain aspects of major energy projects, has been appointed partner in the Energy team which was recently appointed to act in one of Scotland’s largest oil industry transactions, the £500 million acquisition by SSE of some of Total’s West of Shetland operations.

Procurement specialist Caroline Ramsay (EU & Competition) has a wide ranging European law practice advising across the UK and Europe. She recently defended the European Commission in an action involving renewable energy subsidies in Germany, where Pinsent Masons has just opened a second office in Dusseldorf.

Edinburgh-based Jae Fassam has been appointed partner in the Pensions team and has experience of advising on pension aspects of corporate and finance transaction, large-scale M&A projects and in dealing with the Pensions Regulator and HMRC on regulatory matters.

In addition, three senior associates, Stacey Cassidy (Projects), Lesley-Anne Todd (Property) and Joanne Stewart (Technology, Media, Telecoms) have been promoted to Legal Director.

Pinsent Masons employs more than 480 staff, including 73 partners, at offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

Kirk Murdoch, Chairman of Pinsent Masons in Scotland and Northern Ireland, said: “Energy, EU and pensions are all important focus areas for the firm and the appointment to partner of Nick, Caroline and Jae adds to the depth of specialist knowledge we offer in these respective fields. Each has followed a well-defined career path and we are delighted to reward their hard work with these deserved promotions.”
