Harper Macloed LLP
In 1988, two young partners in a Glasgow court firm, Lorne Crerar and Rod McKenzie, took a couple of support staff and converted its business division, which had recently started, into a separate commercial practice. The new start was Harpers, which subsequently took over a niche corporate firm called Macleods, to become Harper Macleod. In 2002, Martin Darroch joined the firm as Finance Director and was appointed Chief Executive in 2006 - Harper Macleod was the first firm in Scotland to appoint a non-lawyer chief executive. In 2014, the firm took over niche private client practice, Bird Semple, to significantly extend its offering in personal legal services.
