Lillian Mackenzie has left ahead of plans to take up “a new challenge and a new adventure”.

She has spent nearly 10 years at DLA Piper, having joined in March 2024, and has led the company’s projects team in the UK over that time, including co-authoring the firm’s Project Autumn report looking into PFI contract expiry. That report helped trigger the Infrastructure & Projects Authority’s own report into behaviours in PFI contracts, which was published earlier this year.

Prior to her time at DLA, Mackenzie spent 14 years at law firm MacRoberts.
