A law firm for life

Congratulations Debbie & Alastair.

Our Senior Partner, Graeme McKinstry, has been appointed to a new role as Chairman of the growing High Street law practice.

On accepting the appointment Graeme said “I am delighted that the partners of the business have confidence in this appointment which will focus on the strategic development, growth and strengthening of our practice in relation to the range of services which we offer and as we strive towards sustained improvement in service delivery for all of our clients.”

One of the Chairman’s first responsibilities was to oversee the development of two key players in the team with the assumption into partnership of Debbie Dunlop who joined the practice just over two years ago to accept the responsibility of developing our offering particularly in South Ayrshire from our office in Girvan.

Debbie’s special interests are acting for private clients particularly in family businesses where she advises on a range of matters from succession planning, worth preservation and all business matters.

In recognising her assumption Graeme commented “Debbie has been an excellent addition to our team and has brought to The McKinstry Company a depth of specialised knowledge in private client matters and since she has arrived has put into practice her specialised knowledge being a member of the Society of Trust and Executry Practitioners.

Debbie has shown drive ambition and enthusiasm in developing her role and we are delighted that she has accepted the assumption into partnership.

Simultaneously Alastair Cameron who joined us in January 2015 and who is, along with Partner Robert Honeyman, Ayrshire’s only other Accredited Specialist in personal injury work has been appointed to the role of Associate to recognise his work in securing sizeable settlements on behalf of clients and to recognise his increased role in business development in growing that important area of our work.

In welcoming Alastair Graeme commented “We are delighted that Alastair’s progression has continued since joining us and that he has successfully secured his specialised accreditation and he is now assuming a more important and advanced role in driving forward that area of our expertise.
