New associate at law firm
Full circle for Stevenson with return to Thorntons
Ms Stevenson – previously a partner at McEwan Fraser Legal – has gone full circle in her career, having started as a trainee with a predecessor of Clarkson Hamilton, which merged with Thorntons last month.
A specialist in property and private client work, and with significant experience in the field of family law, her arrival bolsters the firm’s specialist legal offerings in these practice areas in Fife.
Grant Hamilton, partner, said: “t’s great to have Zoe back. She started her career as a trainee with Baird & Co, which then changed its name to Clarkson Hamilton, and now she’s rejoined Thorntons.
“Zoe is a highly-respected specialist, with a great deal of experience in dealing with a broad range of legal issues. She has exactly the sort of skills and knowledge that will allow us to enhance the service we can offer to our clients in Fife.
“It’s an exciting time for Thorntons in Kirkcaldy. The merger has allowed us to expand our team and range of services.”
Ms Stevenson, who lives in Leven, said: “I have nothing but fond memories of my time with Baird & Co and I feel very much back in familiar surroundings.
“I am looking forward to developing the business in Kirkcaldy. Thorntons has shown real commitment to the town, which research has shown us is one of the fastest growing in Scotland.”
