Joanne Grimmond, a respected and well-established legal figure in the Scottish residential property sector, joined Thorntons earlier this month as a partner.

Formerly a partner and head of Perth with Blackadders, she has nearly 20 years of experience in the Scottish residential property sector.

Ms Grimmond successfully completed the globally recognised STEP Diploma in Trusts and Estates in Scotland in 2022, further enhancing her knowledge on succession planning and the mitigation of inheritance tax in relation to heritable assets.

She said: “I’m delighted to be joining a firm as progressive as Thorntons where clients have access to an extensive range of residential property and other personal legal services.

“In a competitive and often crowded property market, it’s so rewarding to help people secure their dream home, whether it be a first-time buyer or a growing family, and I’m looking forward to working alongside the team here to deliver a first-class service.

“It’s been a busy first few weeks meeting my new colleagues. As a partner, I hope to encompass the firm’s values in my leadership mentality and be a supportive and positive mentor for the team.”

Lesley Larg, managing partner, said: “Joanne is a highly regarded practitioner whose specialist knowledge and years of experience will reinforce our reputation as a leading law firm in the residential property sector.

“Her practical and commercially minded approach combined with a strong focus on client care perfectly fits our business ethos and I have no doubt that her appointment will bolster and enhance the client offering of our residential property team.”
