Critical role at law firm
Boyd Legal hires Cockburn as FD
He was most recently at Gilson Gray, which he helped to launch and develop, and spent two years as head of finance at the Faculty of Advocates. He began his career with Caesar & Howie solicitors & estate agents.
Peter Boyd, managing partner at Boyd Legal, said: “Gerry is a big hitter in the sector and we are thrilled to have him on the books here – where he will play a critical role within the business.
“It also gives us the financial disciplines to start bringing in senior associate solicitors into equity release which is important for the future of the business.”
The appointment follows last year’s merger with Kirkcaldy-based Gibson & Spears, Dow & Son.
