Lisa Law joins Ledingham Chalmers in Inverness
Private client lawyer Lisa Law has joined Ledingham Chalmers as partner in Inverness.
She is one of only 10 solicitors accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in incapacity and mental disability law — and the only one based in the Highlands.
Originally training as a management accountant, Mrs Law also qualified as a Scottish law accountant in 2000. She began studying law the same year and is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
Having lived and worked in the Highlands all her life, most recently she was a legal director, based in Dingwall and Inverness, with another nationwide law firm.
Along with partner JP Campbell, Mrs Law will head up the Inverness private client team, tapping into its considerable expertise, with support for clients including advising on contentious trusts and executries, succession planning for high-net-worth individuals, wills, powers of attorney and guardianships.
Mrs Law said: “Ledingham Chalmers’ fast growing private client team has earned a reputation for offering trusted, strategic advice to clients on matters such as business succession, estate planning, asset protection and trusts.
“My expertise complements that and includes guiding clients through what can be particularly difficult stages of their life, whether the loss of a loved one, navigating choices around handling adult incapacity or assisting with the — sometimes stressful — guardianship order court procedure.”
Managing partner Jennifer Young said: “Not only is Lisa an accredited specialist in incapacity and mental disability law, but she brings with her an exceptional background in private client law.
“Combined with our other recent appointments, we’re adding even more strength and depth to our team to make our growth ambitions a reality. Across the firm, there’s real optimism in what lies ahead.”
