Private client hire
McKinlay joins Anderson Strathern as consultant
Scottish legal firm Anderson Strathern has appointed private client lawyer Sarah McKinlay (pictured with Carole Tomlinson) as a consultant from the former HBJ Gateley, now Addleshaw Goddard.
Ms McKinlay has more than 20 years of expertise in the sector, with a particular focus on high net worth clients and executries. She also specialises in succession planning and working with business owners and their families.
Ms McKinlay’s appointment follows several successful lateral hires into the firm’s private client team, including David Campbell from Balfour & Manson and Anne Henderson from DWF (formerly Biggart Baillie), and coincides with the recent announcement of dual-qualified partner Carole Tomlinson as the first woman to head Anderson Strathern’s private client team.
Ms Tomlinson said: “(Ms McKinlay’s) background in dealing with high value cases and executries will be invaluable.”
