MD Communications has today announced that Linsay Leslie, head of our legal directories, bids and awards team, has been promoted to partner. 

Linsay has over 18 years’ experience in the legal sector. Having trained in Edinburgh with Shepherd and Wedderburn, Linsay was a projects and infrastructure lawyer with the firm, before moving to McGrigors, now Pinsent Masons.

Recognising a passion for helping firms define and achieve strategic growth aims, she went on to establish and lead the legal directories and bids team for HBJ Gateley, now Addleshaw Goddard.

She is highly skilled at working with stakeholders to identify client-focused strategies and writing persuasive bids and proposals submissions, and brings this expertise effectively to her legal directory clients.

Joining MD Communications in 2016, Linsay has worked with magic circle, multi-office US firms and global legal networks, with clients covering over 55 jurisdictions.  She has built up an experienced and talented team, working globally and with specialists located in the UK, Europe, the US and Asia Pacific markets.

A member of the IBA Law Firm Management Committee, Linsay continues to develop a global network, supporting the sustained international growth of the agency.

Managing director Melissa Davis said:

”I am extremely proud of Linsay for the way she has grown so naturally into the role of adviser, supporter and fellow entrepreneur. As we enter into our 10th year in business, our clients, our team and our wide network of friends across the world will benefit from Linsay’s heightened role and extensive network of contacts.”
