Pandemic trainees begin careers at Lindsays
A group of newly-qualified lawyers who began their training at the height of the coronavirus pandemic have secured permanent roles at Lindsays.
They started their new roles this week in positions across various departments at Lindsays’ offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.
The four newly-qualified lawyers who have joined Lindsays permanently are:
- Ronan Duff (Personal Injury) - Glasgow
- Stephanie Goudie (Commercial Property) - Glasgow
- Deborah O’Donnell (Private Client) - Dundee
- Curtis Preston (Corporate) - Edinburgh
Lindsays has a proud history of training lawyers who finish their careers as they started them – at Lindsays.
Alasdair Cummings, Lindsays’ managing partner, also trained at the firm.
He said: “We are incredibly proud to welcome our four newly-qualified lawyers to their permanent roles. They have completed their training in circumstances that were once unimaginable - joining us remotely, getting to know their colleagues and mentors via video and learning during their early days without having the benefit of our experienced professionals physically beside them.
“Each of them has shown tremendous dedication, professionalism and resilience to succeed despite all of the unknowns that our team and clients were contending with. They are experiences which I am sure will actually serve them well during their careers.
“I am so pleased that they have chosen to begin the next chapter of their professional lives with us. It’s testament not only to excellent training, opportunities and high standards of service we deliver for clients, but the way in which the whole Lindsays team pulled together to support each other during the lockdowns and ongoing recovery from the pandemic.”
