Ian Balfour retires from Balfour and Manson at 89
Ian Balfour, whose grandfather founded Balfour and Manson in 1887, is retiring at the age of 89, the Edinburgh Evening News reports.
“Despite retiring as a partner when he reached 65 in 1997, he stayed on as a consultant with the firm and continued working as a sheriff court auditor, advising the courts when parties could not agree on expenses that had been awarded.
“Now, after working for 69 years, he has decided to retire altogether. ‘I had Covid in August and I thought the time had come to hang up my boots, so I told the sheriff principal I wanted to finish at the end of September’.”
