BTO Solicitors has appointed Donna Brennan as legal director in its BTO Raeburn Hope office in Helensburgh, where she will manage the firm’s Wills, Estates & Succession Planning team.

Previously head of Morton Fraser's Glasgow Private Client team, Ms Brennan is a registered trust and estate practitioner. Her recruitment forms part of wider developments in BTO's Helensburgh office, which include the promotion this month to associate of Irene Henderson in the Residential Conveyancing team, and the appointment of lettings manager Mairi Walker.

David Gibson, BTO's chairman, commented: "In making these strategic appointments, which closely follow the recruitment of Gregor Mitchell, and others, we are reinforcing our commitment to our private clients and to growing our presence in Helensburgh. Donna brings extensive experience to an enthusiastic and expanding team for whom service delivery is of paramount importance."
