Coming from a small firm background I have helped a wide variety of private and commercial clients with their domestic and commercial property transactions, the buying and selling of their businesses and their Wills and Powers of Attorney.
I think that the different experiences I have had during my legal career has put me in a good position to help clients with a range of private client and family business matters.
I have also been involved as a Director of family owned businesses, one of which employed about 25 people. Prior to a successful disposal of that business I experienced the highs and lows of being responsible for such a business whilst maintaining family relationships – not always an easy task.
Most of my recent activity involves a variety of private client and smaller scale commercial property work.
On the commercial front I have recently acted in the acquisition of a West Highland restaurant and a former supermarket within a Highland village.
I have also arranged the Lease of a café unit within a newly constructed development.
