LAW firm Ledingham Chalmers today announces four promotions for staff in Aberdeen as part of its growth plans.
The North-east-headquartered company said the moves reflected each individual’s valuable contribution to the organisation and its clients.
Solicitors Mhari Michie and Pamela Sargent, who both work in commercial property, have been promoted to associates.
And in the granite city’s residential property team Claire Ogston is promoted to senior associate and Claire Woodward to senior solicitor.
Meanwhile David Geddie, who joined Ledingham Chalmers in 2019 when Simpson & Marwick Aberdeen’s estate agency team transferred to the firm, has retired as a consultant.
He continues to work closely with Ledingham Chalmers Estate Agency (LCEA) as a property advisor.
Jennifer Young, Ledingham Chalmers managing partner, said: “The last 12 months have been extraordinary for us all. But what has reassuringly remained the same has been our colleagues’ focus on doing great work for our clients and helping us put in place plans for growth, with the SME sector an area of particular focus.
“The promotions are well-deserved recognition of the talent of each of these lawyers, and the impressive dedication of those who completed training — sitting exams and finishing coursework often alongside working, looking after family and supporting remote learning — is no mean feat. Well done, all.”
Across its four offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Stirling, the firm’s headcount is now 156 including 27 partners.
