Value in nurturing own talent
Three join management board at Boyd Legal
The internal promotions will allow the Edinburgh-headquartered practice to develop an enhanced operational board.
Rachael Brandon and Claire Ferguson both began their careers at the firm via work experience, before completing their solicitor traineeships and qualifying to become associates.
Ms Brandon heads up the equity release department while Ms Ferguson works in the private client department headed by Graeme Thomson, a former solicitor with Boyd Legal who spent 10 years as an associate at Lindsay’s.
The appointments follows the announcement that Boyd Legal had merged with Kirkcaldy-based Gibson & Spears, Dow & Son to widen its enhanced legal services offering to people in Fife.
Managing director Peter Boyd said promotions and the merger highlight Boyd Legal’s focus to drive forward its growth plans, in spite of business community concerns about the fall-out of Brexit.
He said: “These are excellent promotions for the future of the firm. They all show the value of legal firms nurturing their own talent – even if that means staff coming in at the lowest rung.”
