Sharp Tudhope Lawyers acknowledge the contribution of former partners as they move into consultant roles


With a combined 129 years of experience, former partners at Sharp Tudhope Lawyers, John Gordon, Bill Chapman and Alasdair Christie, have recently transitioned into consultant roles. The firm are pleased they have chosen to remain part of the team as they take a step towards having some extra time to pursue interests outside of the office.

Chair of Partners, Hamish Murray, says the success of the firm today is a result of the commitment of their former partners.  “Sharp Tudhope is measured by our contribution to this region and our clients.  The work of our former partners has ensured our position today as one of the region’s leading legal firms.  We are therefore delighted that, whilst John, Bill and Alasdair wish to reduce their day-to-day involvement in the firm, they are remaining with us in consultant roles.”

With a deeply invested commitment to the region, Sharp Tudhope is renowned for their future focussed approach. “We are proud of our long heritage and the contribution we have made to the economic development of the region.  It means we can combine a strong mix of heritage and experience with fresh, innovative thinking to ensure we remain future focussed and a demonstrative contributor in our community.”

With the firm having recently celebrated 125 years in business, Hamish says it all comes down to the people. “Across business, social and community sectors, we believe in making a difference. We’ve done so, for 125 years, thanks to the dedication of our people like former partners John, Bill and Alasdair.  We are now going through an exciting phase with the recruitment of a number of talented senior lawyers that we can’t wait to introduce to our clients. The firm has a great leadership team, well positioned for the future.”

John Gordon says “The three of us are proud of the contributions made to the firm during our tenure. The business has great staff and clients. Sharp Tudhope is well positioned for the future and we will continue to be part of the firm’s success.”
