Litigation specialist Sarah McCaffery has been promoted to associate in the Highland practice of law firm Ledington Chalmers.
She is one of five lawyers being awarded a promotion by the firm as part of its growth plans.
Mrs McCaffery previously trained and worked in Edinburgh, specialising in personal injury law, where she gained experience in handling both Sheriff Court and Court of Session cases. She broadened her litigation experience by working for a firm in Moray before joining Ledingham Chalmers' Inverness team.
She acts for both private and public sector clients in relation to range of disputes involving business or individuals including breach of contract, property matters and debt recovery.
She is one of three senior solicitors receiving promotion to associate, with the others – Mhari Michie and Pamela Sargent – both based in the firm's home city of Aberdeen, where lawyer Claire Ogston has also been promoted to senior associate and Claire Woodward becomes a senior solicitor.
Managing partner, Jennifer Young, said: “The last 12 months have been extraordinary for us all. But what has reassuringly remained the same has been our colleagues’ focus on doing great work for our clients and helping us put in place plans for growth, with the SME sector an area of particular focus.
“The promotions are well deserved recognition of the talent of each of these lawyers. Well done, all.”
Across its four offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Stirling, the firm now employs a total of 156 staff including 27 partners.
