Lindsays announces new chair

Nina Taylor

Nina Taylor has been named as the new chair of Lindsays.

The partner in family law will succeed Peter Tweedie, who is retiring both as chairman and a partner from March 31, although he will remain with the firm in a consultancy role.

Ms Taylor’s nomination and election to the role comes 11 years after she joined the firm as an associate.

She said: “I am incredibly proud to become chair of Lindsays, a firm with a fine history which demonstrates how our enduring ethos can work successfully with cutting-edge working practices to deliver for our clients and colleagues.

“I am very much looking forward to the role and, as someone who joined the firm as an associate, I hope that my election highlights the opportunities available for all talent in the legal profession, offering progression and development across all of the areas in which the firm works.”

Ms Taylor added: “It is important to me that we retain our independent Scottish status, while growing within our markets.

“That’s about growth where it is organic and feels natural to do so - where opportunities emerge to work with the right people, in the right places, maintaining the strong values of integrity and independent advice for which the firm has a hard-earned reputation.”

Mr Tweedie said: “It has been an incredibly interesting time to be in the chair, not only through the firm’s growth, but in supporting colleagues to manage the coronavirus pandemic and the evolution it has brought.

“These are all things in which we can take great pride, along with the opportunities we have continued to provide for colleagues to advance their careers through the Lindsays way of thoughtful, informed and tailored legal advice to the people and businesses who entrust us to work with them. Thanks to all of that, the firm has a really strong future.

“I am delighted that Nina will be succeeding me in the chair. She is someone whose own work epitomises our firm’s values. I am sure she will make a real mark on the role. I wish her well in it.”

Alasdair Cummings, Lindsays’ managing partner, added: “On behalf of our partners - and the wider Lindsays family - I would like to thank Peter for his wise counsel and steadfast leadership over the past eight years.

“I know I speak for everyone in the firm when I say we are looking forward to working alongside Nina in her new role. She is a fantastic lawyer and a great colleague.”
