We are delighted to advise two appointments to the firm. These appointments represent the achievement of a doubling in size for the firm since a management buyout in 2009.

• Victoria Lawson has been appointed as a Conveyancing Executive in the private client team.

• Colm Kerr has been appointed as a Trainee Solicitor in the corporate team.

• Victoria Lawson has been appointed as a Conveyancing Executive in the private client team, joining the firm from respected Scottish conveyancing firm McVey & Murricane.

Victoria is vastly experienced in all areas of domestic property purchases, sales and remortgages, having spent the last 10 years as a key member of her previous firm’s management team and focusing on delivery of excellent client service, negotiation of property purchases and sales, and the maintenance of client relations and managing conveyancers.

Victoria’s commitment to delivering the best level of client care together with outstanding knowledge of the Scottish property market makes her ideally placed to meet the needs of all of our clients looking to get the best property deals.

Her clients can be assured of attention to detail and a bespoke client experience.

• Colm Kerr has been appointed as a Trainee Solicitor in the corporate team. Colm graduated in June 2016 with an Honours law degree from Strathclyde University.

Colm has hit the ground running at Macdonald Henderson, carrying out detailed contract reviews and diligence exercises as well as providing invaluable support on various acquisitions, disposals, investments and management buy-outs - all handled with an assuredness and dexterity which belies this early stage of his career.

Colm is set to continue Macdonald Henderson’s keen sporting tradition, with an enthusiastic interest in rugby and football. Colm’s terrific inter-personal skills and attention to detail are assets for the firm.

Managing Director David Beveridge commented:

“We are proud to welcome Victoria and Colm to the firm. We continue to observe opportunities for growth in our firm’s key practice areas, namely corporate, commercial property, private client and dispute resolution.

These appointments mark something of a milestone, being the achievement of a doubling in size (in terms of headcount) for the firm since our management buyout in 2009.

We feel well positioned to take advantage of continually improving market conditions and are grateful for the continued support of our clients, contacts and friends in business".
