Law Firm Expands as dispute specialist makes two senior appointments

Public relations in Edinburgh for Scottish legal firm ADLPCommercial dispute specialist Alistair Dean has expanded his niche legal practice ADLP, with the ambitious appointment of two senior lawyers.

Just three years after founding ADLP, the solicitor-advocate is delighted with the expansion, which sees court practitioner Michael Wells join as a partner and renewable energy expert Mignonne Khazaka appointed as a consultant.

Alistair, who is renowned for his expertise in handling contractual disputes and negligence claims, often within the construction sector, said: “ADLP remains a niche, specialist law practice, with a commitment to family values, fair and transparent pricing, and strong client relationships.

“Mike and Mignonne’s arrival perfectly fits the future direction of the firm. They each have a positive outlook on life, an impressive track record and excellent credentials. I feel very lucky to have both of them on board.

“The construction industry remains important to the firm, but we want to develop into other areas.  We can now deal with a broader range of dispute resolution work, whilst also gaining an all-important foothold in the renewable energy sector.”
