Leonard McGill is on the road again. In February the Scottish-bred lawyer was named vice president and deputy general counsel to a quintessentially American concern, Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc., a manufacturer of mobile homes and recreational vehicles. In his former job as of counsel at Los Angeles-based Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s Irvine, California, office, McGill served as Fleetwood’s primary outside lawyer. In his new position, McGill hitches up with business transactions and regulatory compliance issues at the housing and RV giant. The 44-year-old reports to Fleetwood’s general counsel and CFO. “The in-house legal group has been litigation-oriented,” says McGill. “I had been handling business and security matters. We all recognized that it made sense to bring work in-house.” McGill was born and raised in Edinburgh. After attending the University of Edinburgh, he visited the United States-traveling to big cities like Boston and to smaller towns in Ohio and Pennsylvania. “I was intrigued by the size of the country and the opportunities for a bright young man to make his fortune,” he says. At 21, he decided to stay. Next, he attended law school at Georgetown University, graduating in 1986. He married an American from Miami; they have two daughters. McGill started practicing law at the Washington, D.C., office of New York’s Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. In 1987 he moved out west to Los Angeles and joined Gibson, Dunn. Fleetwood was a longtime client of Gibson, Dunn’s. Two years ago, McGill worked on a transaction for Fleetwood and subsequently worked on other matters for the company. The work eventually led McGill to his new post. Although the attorney does not own one of his company’s products, the attorney is considering it. “Given how much enthusiasm our customers who use them for vacations have for them, I ought to get one,” he says.
