Balfour and Manson has announced three appointments to its Edinburgh office.

Martin Lavery has joined the firm as a private client solicitor. Mr Lavery started his legal career as a trainee with Morton Fraser where he undertook a varied traineeship before deciding to specialise in private client work. He moves to Balfour and Manson from McClures in Glasgow.

Also joining the firm is residential property solicitor Will Wallace. Mr Wallace joins the firm from McCash & Hunter LLP in Perth where he also completed his traineeship. He has focused on conveyancing since qualifying in August 2019.

Newly appointed associate Carolyn Jackson has joined the litigation division, bringing a wealth of clinical negligence experience to the firm. She has gained a strong reputation for negotiating claims – particularly a number of ongoing high-value birth injury cases in the Court of Session - and has dealt with lower-value claims at the All-Scotland Personal Injury Court.

She joins the firm from NewLaw Scotland LLP, before which she practised at Drummond Miller.

Chairman Elaine Motion, said: “These three exceptionally talented individuals join the firm with their backgrounds and experience adding significant weight to our private client, property and litigation departments.

“Balfour and Manson remains one of the most progressive law firms in the country but our future growth rests firmly on the shoulders of individuals like Martin, Carolyn and Will whose deep knowledge and expertise will help us uphold the excellent service our clients demand from us.”
