Firm says sound advice over personal affairs has never been more important as it continues to see strong demand for services
LINDSAYS, the independent Scottish legal firm for people and businesses, has strengthened its Private Client team with the appointment of a new Director.
Alison McKay has joined the firm’s team based in Glasgow as it continues to meet high demand for legal services in her specialist area.
She is experienced across the full range of Private Client work, including Wills and Powers of Attorney, setting up trusts and providing estate planning advice.
Mrs McKay has 14 years of legal practice behind her, the last decade of which has been based with another firm in Glasgow, working with clients across central Scotland. A graduate of the University of Dundee, she is also a legal diploma tutor at the University of Glasgow.
She said: “The Private Client team at Lindsays is so well regarded and I am delighted to have joined it. In making the next step in my career, I wanted to become part of an established team, with a good reputation for providing a quality service to clients. Lindsays is the standout firm for me in every regard.
“Securing strong legal advice when it comes to managing our personal affairs has never been more important. Changing family dynamics, the growth of digital assets and the tragic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic have brought about a real awakening about the importance of making sure we are clear in our wishes for all sorts of eventualities.
“I enjoy getting to know clients – often getting to know their friends and family also – while working with them to tailor the best arrangements for them.”
Lindsays has Private Client teams based out of its Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee offices.
Grant Johnson, Partner and Head of Private Client at Lindsays, said: “Alison is a great fit for us, adding yet more strength to our team of experts. We are delighted to have her on-board.
“Her arrival reflects the growing demand for Private Client services that we are seeing across the firm as increasing numbers of people turn to us to secure good quality advice for them and their families.”
