Blackadders has announced the appointments of three new solicitors to its expanding property team.

Kirsty Wilson and Lisa Martin have both joined the firm as senior solicitors in the residential conveyancing department. Ms Wilson qualified in 2010 and has previous experience in private client and civil court work but in recent years has moved her focus towards residential property matters.

Ms Martin also qualified in 2010 and has experience in civil court, private client and family law departments. However, since qualifying she has specialised in all areas of residential property matters which adds further expertise to the residential conveyancing team.

Fraser Morrison joins the firm as a solicitor in the commercial property team. He is experienced in all aspects of commercial property transactions, acting for a wide range of clients including large companies, private individuals and lenders.

Lindsay Darroch, head of property at Blackadders said: “Our appointment of these three highly rated solicitors demonstrates the growth of the property department at the firm and more importantly our commitment to delivering top-level advice to our clients”

The appointments come on the back of a busy and successful year for the Blackadders property team.

The commercial property team, led by Emma Gray, has received a tier 2 ranking in the Legal 500 directory. Ms Gray was also recognised as a recommended lawyer by the publication.

The commercial property team also entered the UK Chambers & Partners publication for the first time, with Ms Gray again being ranked.

Mr Darroch added: “The property team has had a fantastic year. We are delighted to see the work of Emma Gray and her team recognised by the Legal 500 and UK Chambers & Partners – two highly credible directories – which shows the capability of the team. We look forward to building on this success in 2016.”
