Morag is a solicitor with Mitchells Roberton becoming the first female Partner in the firm in 1993. After many years in her role as the Managing Partner, Morag became the first female Chairman of Mitchells Roberton in April 2021. As the Chairman of the firm Morag views people – both clients and colleagues to be at the core of business.
Morag has long been aware of the good work done by Cerebral Palsy Scotland and was delighted to be invited to join the Board as a Trustee in 2022, coinciding with the retirement of her former colleague Donald Reid who was a trustee for many years.
Mitchells Roberton traces its roots back as one of the oldest legal firms in Glasgow and takes pride in the fact that the firm has strong links with and has acted for a number of Glasgow Charitable Organisations.
The chance for Morag to be involved with Cerebral Palsy Scotland fits very well with the fact that Mitchells Roberton has helped families, generation after generation and one of Morag’s missions as Chairman is to preserve and strengthen the Mitchells Roberton caring culture within the business.
Morag brings to the Board her broad legal experience: for much of her legal career Morag specialised in areas of commercial practice acting for a wide range of clients in property disposals, acquisitions, leases and in offering a variety of business and general contract advice.
Morag also has a large private client base and so gets involved in all sorts of issues for them too. She believes in providing a holistic approach to problem solving always looking at the wider picture.
