Turcan Connell has announced the appointment of its first two legal directors, Jenny Younger and Kenneth Pinkerton, along with the promotion of other members of staff.

The news follows last month’s announcement of the firm’s new managing partner, Gillian Crandles, and new partners, Graeme Gass and Alistair Rushworth.

Chairman Simon Mackintosh said: “We are very pleased to welcome Jenny Younger and Kenneth Pinkerton in their promotions to the newly created role of legal director. As legal directors they will have particular responsibility for our relationships with a number of clients, as well as a management role, and will apply their specialist professional skills widely across our tax and succession and charity teams.”

Mr Pinkerton specialises in the fields of charity law, tax and estate planning for private clients, trusts and executries. His experience of charity law is extensive, covering the entire spectrum of advice to charities both large and small from operating to grant-giving.

Ms Younger works principally in the areas of trusts, asset protection and succession planning. She regularly advises clients on a wide range of issues, with a particular emphasis on capital taxation (inheritance tax and capital gains tax) and estate planning issues.

The firm has also announced the following internal promotions: Heather Bruce, Paul Forrester Smith, Rona Macdonald, Mark McKeown and Neil Wilson, who become senior associates; Jennifer Macdonald and Debbie McIlwraith Cameron, who have been promoted to associate; Catherine Guthrie, Hannah Starritt, Amy Stevenson and Riikka Wilkinson who are now senior solicitors.

Within the tax compliance team, Scott Webster is now a tax manager and Amy Barrows a senior tax assistant. In business support, Faye Cooke becomes knowledge manager; Clare Hedges, HR consultant; Laura Gibb, assistant billing manager; and Holly Williamson, office services team leader.
