McClure Naismith has hired lawyer Julie Terrey to head its expanding “private client services” arm. The division focuses on issues relating to wealth and the law that face families and individuals, and the firm is looking to promote its services more widely.
Terrey, previously a director with MacTaggart & Co and Kingsley Wood & Co, said: “Wealth management can be a pressing problem for many families and individuals but with careful planning and management we can help protect assets and make life easier for anyone facing challenging times in their lives.”
Another lawyer on the move over Christmas was David Walker, who left Dundas & Wilson after 15 years as a partner to join Morton Fraser’s Glasgow employment team.
Walker has been accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in employment law since 1996.
He also advises clients in the corporate and higher education sectors on business immigration matters.
Irish PR girl Andrea Willoughby has left Holyrood Partnership in Edinburgh and is hoping to become a comedy publicist working out of London.
She says she expects to make occasional forays to Dublin but has not left Scotland for good. She was given a send off by her colleagues at Holyrood with a pizza feast and says she will be back in Edinburgh in time for the Fringe.
