Siobhan McGuigan joins Anderson Strathern
Anderson Strathern has announced the appointment of private client lawyer Siobhan McGuigan, who joins as a partner from Blackadders.
Ms McGuigan, who brings experience across the full range of private client services, will head up the private client team in the firm’s expanded Glasgow office while working closely with Carole Tomlinson, head of private client.
Ms McGuigan has more than 18 years of expertise in the sector, with a particular focus on executry work, wills and powers of attorney. She also provides English probate legal advice, has attained the STEP Diploma and is a senior tutor at the University of Glasgow where she teaches on the Diploma in Legal Practice.
The appointment comes at a time when the firm is experiencing an increasing demand for private client services, such as wills and powers of attorney, during the current coronavirus pandemic. The firm has added a “For You” section to its Business Hub, which was developed specifically to help business leaders as companies face up to the financial effects of the pandemic.
Anderson Strathern expanded its Glasgow operations recently by taking a further suite of office space at George House on the city’s George Square following the merger with Glasgow law firm Hardy McPhail in October 2019.
Ms McGuigan said: “I am delighted to be joining such a well-respected, resourced and experienced team. The depth and focus of the expertise in the private client department, as well as the access to quality advice across the rest of the firm was what attracted me to the role and I look forward to the future with Anderson Strathern.”
Ms Tomlinson added: “Siobhan’s experience and expertise is a perfect fit with our existing team and we are looking forward to working with her and to build on and develop our expanding private client offering in Glasgow and the west of Scotland.”
The private client team works in tandem with the firm’s market-leading Rural Land & Business while also offering a full residential conveyancing and estate agency service.
