The appointments reflect the firm’s strategy of developing legal services for clients across all key practice areas as well as recognising and nurturing talent from within the business.
Four of the promoted lawyers are members of Lindsays’ commercial property team: Andrew Boccoli (Edinburgh) is now a director in the construction group; Darren Leahy (Dundee) and Vanessa Beattie (Edinburgh) both take on senior associate roles; and Sharon Drysdale (Edinburgh) is now an associate.
A further two new associates take up their roles in the family law and dispute resolution and litigation teams respectively – Pamela Dobson in Dundee and Gregor MacEwan in Edinburgh.
Lindsays’ managing partner, Alasdair Cummings, said: “It is rewarding for the board and our partners to be able to recognise these talented lawyers and we look forward to supporting them as they develop their careers with the firm.
“Our strategic plan is to continue growing and strengthening Lindsays and to further develop the range of services which we offer to both our individual and commercial clients across our three city locations. Investing in the next generation is an important part of that strategy.”
