David said, “I am honoured to be a partner in MacRoberts, delighted to be joining an exceptional partner team, and fully intend to continue to uphold the firm’s guiding principles, and to develop and expand my practice in the energy sector.”

Robin Fallas has been with the firm for 10 years and was a Senior Associate in the Projects Group.

He also advises a wide range of organisations across the third sector, including social enterprises and charities, and is a member of The Law Society’s Charity Law Sub-committee.

Robin said, “I’m delighted to have been appointed partner and look forward to continuing to grow the strength and breadth of our public sector and charities teams. During my time at MacRoberts, working with the variety of people who make up the firm, has been extremely enjoyable, and I look forward to that continuing.”

It comes on the same day that new Manging Partner Neil Kennedy officially takes over the reins from John Macmillan who returns to his role as a Partner in the firm’s Employment team.
