LEGAL firm Anderson Strathern has announced the hire of rural partner Linsey Barclay-Smith.

Linsey joins the rural land and business team from Morton Fraser and will work alongside 20 other members including department manager Anne Chapman.

She said: “Anderson Strathern is highly-rated in the sector, with a longstanding history of advising many of the main players on the rural scene. 

“Not only does the firm have one of the largest practices in Scotland, but it is also a dynamic team with a great culture and I’m excited to get involved in some innovative projects.”    

Anne said: “Linsey brings a wealth of experience to our team, technical expertise, strong related contacts and networks in Scotland, across the UK and internationally, and shares our approach to client focus. 

“The laws and regulations governing the rural sector are evolving rapidly, including around continuing land reform, and it’s great to have Linsey on board to strengthen our offering.”
