BTO Celebrates its Third Accredited Specialist in Employment Law

22 March 2021

BTO is delighted to announce that Laura Salmond has been accredited as an employment law specialist by The Law Society of Scotland.

Laura’s achievement brings BTO’s total number of accredited specialists in employment law to three, as her fellow partners Caroline Carr and Jacqueline McCluskey have already held this qualification for 20 years and 10 years respectively.

Laura has a loyal client following and is instructed by a broad range of public and private sector clients and senior executive employees on all aspects of the employment relationship. She is particularly experienced in advising and representing trade union and federation members.

BTO’s employment team receives instructions from some of the world’s largest insurers, instructed to represent the interests of their insured business clients in Employment Tribunal claims. Moreover, having established a specialism in the healthcare sector, the team was involved in one of the highest profile Employment Tribunal cases in Scotland recently, involving many complexities and Scottish Government intervention.

David Gibson, BTO Chairman, commented:

“Laura is a highly effective and well-respected partner in our firm. This endorsement recognises Laura’s specialist expertise in employment law. For our clients, the qualification is further reassurance of her calibre and the quality of employment law advice that they are receiving.

“We are committed to delivering exceptional client service and supporting our lawyers’ professional development and this kind of recognition plays a part in achieving those objectives.”

Laura Salmond said:

“I wanted to attain accredited specialist status for my clients. I am very pleased that they will have this assurance that they are receiving first class, pragmatic, commercially sound advice at all times and particularly in more complex cases.”
