Trio promoted at Miller Hendry
Tayside-based Miller Hendry has started the New Year with the promotion of three key staff members.
Mhairi Cage, based in the Perth office, and Julie Darroch, based in the Crieff office, have been promoted to senior associate, while Lindsay Kirkwood, based in the Dundee office, has been promoted to senior solicitor.
Ms Cage graduated from the University of Glasgow before completing a Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Dundee. She joined the firm as a trainee in 2010 working within the private client department. Her responsibilities include dealing with wills, powers of attorney, executries, guardianships, inheritance tax planning, trusts and charities.
Ms Darroch, who is the third generation of her family to work for the firm, practised in Edinburgh before starting at Miller Hendry in 2014. She specialises in all aspects of residential property work including conveyancing, title disputes and sale and purchase of property. As senior associate she will be responsible for helping the growth of the business in Crieff.
A graduate of Glasgow University, Ms Kirkwood started as a trainee with the firm in 2015 within the private client department, qualifying as a solicitor in 2017. Since then has achieved a coveted international industry qualification, the STEP Diploma in Trust and Estates (Scotland), which means she is now a recognised expert in her field of family inheritance and succession planning.
John Thom, chairman of Miller Hendry, said: “We’re delighted to start the year with a series of promotions for our extremely hard-working team, which span all three of our offices in Tayside.
“Mhairi, Julie and Lindsay are exceptional staff members, who thoroughly deserve their promotions. They will be an integral part of the firm as we move the business forward and realise our ambitious plans for growth in Tayside.”
