Aberdeen private client specialist brings 40 years’ experience to Shepherd and Wedderburn
Private client specialist George Stevenson has joined Shepherd and Wedderburn as a consultant, bringing more than 40 years’ expertise across the spectrum of personal legal and tax matters to the firm and its clients.
Mr Stevenson, who specialises in all aspects of estate and inheritance tax planning, including wills, trusts, guardianships, executries and Powers of Attorney, is renowned for his focus on clients and exceptional technical skills.
Based in Shepherd and Wedderburn’s Aberdeen office, with a north of Scotland remit, Mr Stevenson joins a rapidly expanding private client team in the Granite City.
In recent months, the firm has recruited Gillian Campbell as a partner and head of private client in Aberdeen and the north of Scotland, and solicitor Kirsten McKinnon.
He said: “I am very excited to join such a prestigious firm, with a long history acting for clients in the UK and internationally. I look forward to assisting Gillian with the continuing development of the private client practice locally and throughout the north of Scotland and working alongside a talented, collegiate team.”
Ms Campbell said: “Attracting a private client lawyer of George’s stature and experience is a huge win for Shepherd and Wedderburn’s fast-growing private client practice in Aberdeen and the north east.”
Malcolm Rust, head of private client at Shepherd and Wedderburn, said: “We are delighted to welcome a specialist of George’s calibre to our Aberdeen private client team – further demonstrating our sustained investment in Aberdeen and the north of Scotland.
“His experience and technical skills will be of real benefit to our clients, in particular those requiring advice on estate and succession planning and those looking to protect their assets during uncertain economic times.”
