Carson McDowell has promoted Catherine Carton to partner in its defence insurance team.
Since her qualification in 1999, Catherine has specialised in the defence of employer’s liability and public liability claims, with a particular interest in claims arising in the retail, engineering and maritime industries.
Managing partner Roger McMillan said: “Catherine’s desire and ability to enhance the legal services experience for clients in her sector, made her an obvious candidate to become our 26th partner.
“Since joining the firm in 2015, Catherine has also contributed significantly to the firm’s focus on corporate social responsibility.
The growing defence insurance team, led by Claire Harmer, includes two partners, two consultants, a senior associate, two associates and two assistant solicitors.
The team manages a large caseload of complex personal injury claims on behalf of various market leaders in the insurance industry, self-insured global companies and public sector bodies.
