Harper Macleod signs the Armed Forces Covenant

Leading Scottish law firm Harper Macleod demonstrated its support for the country's Armed Forces community by committing to honour the Armed Forces Covenant at a recent signing held in Glasgow.

The firm, represented by Partner John McHugh, was one of a number of businesses and organisations signing the Covenant, which is the country's commitment to those who serve in our forces and their families, including veterans, recognising the contribution they make to our business and to the country.


The Covenant was also signed by Lieutenant Colonel J R McElhinney, Commanding Officer 6th Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Scotland.

The Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. It is a national responsibility involving government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public.

Through the Covenant, Harper Macleod confirmed it is an armed forces-friendly organisation and seeks to support the employment of veterans young and old and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), in order to establish a tailored employment pathway for Service Leavers. The firm also offers a discount on its services to members of the Armed Forces Community.
