A law firm for life

Employing, developing and investing in lawyers of the future

Rosslyn Fowler

Ros joined our private Client Team in 2018 having previously trained and worked in Glasgow for 11 years.   She obtained an MA(Hons) in Politics from the University of Glasgow then worked for several years with the Scottish Court Service primarily in Edinburgh & Stirling.   Enjoying the Court environment, she returned to university to undertake the accelerated LLB at Strathclyde University. Upon graduating she initially specialised in litigation matters but developed a keen interest in Adult with Incapacity work which led to her moving into the Private Client field permanently which she enjoys immensely.

Outside of work, Ros has 2 young daughters who occupy most of her time!  When she can, she tries to get some me-time with hot yoga.  Ros is also an advocate and fundraiser for the National Deaf Children’s Society, a charity very close to her heart.


Ashlee Waton

Ashlee joined our Property Department in 2018 having recently completed her Traineeship at a Glasgow based firm. As part of our Property Team, she deals primarily with residential transactions and will be assisting the Commercial Property Department as well.

Although Ashlee lives in the city she is very much an outdoorsy girl at heart and loves nothing more than taking to the Highlands at the weekend with her dog to bag Monroes.

During her spare time Ashlee enjoys staying fit and active by going to the gym and taking part in her local Park Run.   With a keen interest in music and travel, Ashlee spends a lot of her spare time at live music events and planning her next holiday destination.
