Brodies re-elect Christine O'Neill for fourth consecutive term as chair

By John Glover

Brodies has re-elected Christine O’Neill as its chair to serve a fourth consecutive term for the Scottish law firm.

She was first elected to the position in 2013. Her fourth, three-year term, will begin on 1 May 2022.

O’Neill is responsible for overseeing the firm’s business planning and governance.

In 2016, she became the first solicitor advocate to be appointed as First Standing Junior Counsel to the Scottish Government, and in 2020, she was appointed as Queen's Counsel.

Working with both commercial and public sector clients, O’Neill is regularly instructed in judicial reviews, statutory appeals and public inquiries, acting for clients that include the Scottish Government, the Scottish Charity Regulator and UK regulators such as the Gambling Commission.

Brodies’ managing partner Nick Scott said: "Christine's re-election to serve a fourth term as our chairman is welcome news for our firm and is indicative of the high regard that she is held in by partners, clients, and colleagues alike.

"She demonstrates unwavering commitment to her colleagues, our firm and its clients - the example she sets ensures that we strive to achieve the best that we can, collectively and individually."
