Alasdair Cummings, Lindsays’ managing partner, said: “This has been another very solid year for our firm. Our strength lies in our breadth, and has done throughout the turbulence of the last decade-or-so. With such a wide range of legal services for people and businesses, we can withstand sectoral difficulties and continue our positive journey.

“Most importantly, another strong year allows us to invest in our key asset - our people. We want to encourage new talent to come to us, and we want to reward the great people we have. The promotions of Lynsey, Kirsty and Darren, and the re-elections of Susan and Peter, are recognition of their exceptional talents.”

Newly re-elected chairman, Peter Tweedie, said: “Throughout our long history we have constantly adapted and evolved, but our core ethos - to provide expert, accessible and reliable lawyers - has endured.

“It’s important that we continue to attract and retain the best talent the industry has to offer, and I am delighted Lynsey, Kirsty and Darren will be a key part of helping us achieve further success in the future.”

Ms Kerr said: “Lindsays has a long history as a leading firm in private client services in Scotland, and I’m delighted to be a part of its bright future as a partner.”
