Caroline Mackintosh joins Lindsays in Perth
Caroline Mackintosh has joined Lindsays in Perth after spending almost four years as a solicitor with the Scottish government.
The Law Society of Scotland-accredited specialist in child law is also the first new partner to be appointed by Lindsays in Perth since it moved into the city through its merger with Miller Hendry last May.
Ms Mackintosh said: “I am delighted to have joined Lindsays as a partner, to be back at work in Perth and at the coalface of family law, alongside some familiar faces.
“I enjoyed my time with the Scottish government, which involved policy advisory work and drafting secondary legislation in the area of children and education.
“It’s been an incredibly interesting, enjoyable and valuable experience, but I came to realise that my real passion lies in practising the law – and working with families affected by it – rather than being involved in creating it.
“Developing my career as part of the team at Lindsays allows me to do exactly that.”
Alasdair Cummings, managing partner at Lindsays, said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Caroline to the team. Her experience, enthusiasm and local knowledge will be a real asset to our firm – and our clients – as we work with increasing numbers of people and businesses across Perthshire and throughout Tayside.
“Our family lawyers share sound and measured advice, often at some of the most stressful times in a person’s life. It is support that makes a difference – and you need the right people to deliver it. That makes Caroline the perfect fit at what is a really exciting time for us in the region.”
