Aberdein Considine promotes legal specialists as growth continues
Aberdein Considine has appointed a new partner and senior associate.
Gemma Perfect, who is based at the firm’s flagship headquarters in Aberdeen, has been promoted from associate to partner in the commercial real estate team. Ms Perfect joined Aberdein Considine as a trainee solicitor in 2007 after completing her diploma in legal practice at the University of Aberdeen.
She specialises primarily in commercial property matters, dealing with acquisitions and disposals, as well as commercial leasing, residential developments and bank security and financing.
Carly Stewart joined Aberdein Considine’s dispute resolution team as an associate in 2019 and has been promoted to senior associate.
Ms Stewart, who is also based in Aberdeen, brings over 15 years’ experience in commercial litigation.
Paul Jennings, head of commercial real estate at Aberdein Considine, said: “Since joining the firm in 2007, Gemma has proved herself to be an outstanding lawyer.
“As the north east commercial property market continues its recovery, Gemma’s real estate expertise and knowledge is in greater demand than ever, and her promotion to partner is a reflection of her value to the firm, and the high regard in which she held by clients.”
Euan McSherry, head of dispute resolution, added: “Carly’s appointment last year was a critical part of a wider investment in strengthening our dispute resolution practice, an area which has been expanding rapidly and continues to grow as businesses seek the highest quality of advice in an uncertain world.
“She is a highly regarded lawyer and her promotion is extremely well deserved.”
