Scottish law firm Brodies said yesterday it had appointed Sonia Love as an oil and gas partner at its Aberdeen office.
Mrs Love, who will be working alongside Brodies’ head of oil and gas, Clare Munro, joins the company from Stronachs.
Brodies said her arrival brought its Aberdeen workforce to 30 within a year of it opening the Granite City office.
As well as Stronachs, Mrs Love has worked as an in-house lawyer for oil and gas operators Total, Conoco and Talisman.
Brodies managing partner Bill Drummond said her expertise would benefit the firm’s clients during the latest round of exploration and development in UK waters.
