Vialex boosts service with senior lawyer hires
The Edinburgh-based practice has hired experienced lawyer Katie Corrigan (left) as Head of Real Estate, a newly-created position.
Ms Corrigan, 40, originally from Glasgow, joins from Brodies where she spent three and a half years as an associate. She worked at Tods Murray for 10 years, specialising in the hospitality and leisure sector. Previously she spent two years at Maclay Murray and Spens.
Commenting on her new role, she said: “A lot of corporate deals have a property element and I am here to support Vialex with that but also to grow our real estate business in its own right.”
Also joining Vialex is Catriona Melton, who has been appointed a senior legal adviser, specialising in data protection.
Aberdeen-born Ms Melton, 33, was previously in-house counsel with Hymans Robertson and before that worked in a similar role at Aegon UK.
At Vialex she will also advise clients on general compliance and commercial matters.
A number of hires have also been made into Vialex’s transaction services team including Zoe Fowlie who trained and qualified with Gillespie Macandrew.
Keith Dinsmore, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Transaction Services, said: “We are delighted to welcome these latest additions to Vialex’s growing team.
“These appointments demonstrate our ambition to grow and develop other specialist service lines in response to our clients’ needs.”
