Firm appoints Magnus Miller as the first partner in its Dispute Resolution team in Scotland


Burges Salmon is pleased to announce the appointment of Magnus Miller as a partner in its Dispute Resolution team, based in Edinburgh.

Magnus joins Burges Salmon from Davidson Chalmers Stewart.

Magnus is a seasoned litigator with experience in advising on a wide range of real estate disputes and commercial litigation matters across both the public and private sector. His expertise also extends to insolvency, professional negligence, regulatory matters and judicial review. Magnus has significant experience in both the Court of Session and Sheriff Courts, as well as acting for clients in arbitrations.

Magnus comments: “Burges Salmon’s reputation for the quality of its lawyers, along with its equally impressive client-base, is second to none. I am therefore pleased to be joining Burges Salmon at such an exciting time to help shape its dispute resolution offering in Scotland and work with colleagues and clients to support the firm’s ambitious strategy for growth.”

This latest appointment for Burges Salmon in Scotland comes as the firm marks its 5-year anniversary of launching an office in Edinburgh. Since 2019, Burges Salmon’s Scottish presence has gone from strength-to-strength, resulting in an early increase of its office footprint with the acquisition of 3,000 sq. ft of additional space in Atria One. The expansion meant the firm could accommodate a growing team that today boasts over 80 people.

Andrew Burnette, the Head of Dispute Resolution at Burges Salmon, says: “As we celebrate the firm’s 5th anniversary in Scotland and our UK-wide Dispute Resolution practice continues to grow, I am delighted to welcome Magnus as our first disputes partner in Edinburgh. Magnus is a widely respected and highly experienced litigator, so I am very pleased that he will be leading our contentious offering in Scotland.”

Comprising a 100+ strong team of specialist lawyers, Burges Salmon’s Dispute Resolution team provides expert advice to multi-national organisations, institutions, entrepreneurial businesses, and high net worth individuals facing complex challenges in the UK and internationally.

Magnus Miller joined Burges Salmon on Monday 10 June 2024.
