Anderson Strathern has confirmed the appointments of a new director and associate.

Ellen Eunson joins the firm as an experienced legal director specialising in rural law, covering a broad remit. This includes property sales and purchases, bank security work, succession planning, partnerships, agricultural leases, crofting, and renewables.

She previously split her time between her old firm’s Aberdeen office and her home in Kirkwall, but now looks forward to establishing a stronger presence for Anderson Strathern in Orkney.

Ms Eunson said: “I was drawn to the role as it gives me the opportunity to work with a large firm while maintaining my specialisation in rural work. It also gives me the chance to be a full-time part of the professional and business community here in Orkney.”

Jennifer Sim joins Anderson Strathern as an associate, specialising in corporate and commercial law. Based in the firm’s Lerwick office, Ms Sim acts for SMEs, venture capital/private equity funds, investors, and family-run businesses in various sectors.

She said: “I live in Tingwall with my husband and little boy, and we have built a house here, which is something I wouldn’t have been able to do in Edinburgh, where I was previously based.

“From a business perspective, Shetland is a very dynamic place to be – businesses are thriving, and large-scale projects are generating excitement on a national level. It’s good to know that my work may have a positive impact on the local economy.”

The Northern Isles team is headed up by Orkney-based partner Sheila Tulloch who joined Anderson Strathern in September 2023, bringing extensive experience from across the public and commercial sectors.
