Partner promotion follows Ledingham Chalmers acquisition
Ledingham Chalmers has announced the promotion of Lynne Stewart to partner.
Ms Stewart joined the firm on 1 November from Simpson & Marwick Aberdeen with the transfer from Clyde & Co of its Estate Agency team trading under that name (click here for report).
She commented: "The market has been challenging for the last four to five years following the oil industry downturn, but over the last year we’ve seen signs of recovery. Add to that the city is looking to the future with a host of civic developments, such as the recently opened P&J Live and Aberdeen Harbour Board’s £350m South Harbour development, all signalling a return to an outwardly optimistic region."
Jennifer Young, Ledingham Chalmers chairman and partner added: "Lynne is a very experienced conveyancer and lawyer and will undoubtedly be an asset to the firm."
Ledingham Chalmers' headcount is now 186, including 33 partners.
