Legal firm Thorntons has promoted three new partners across its specialist property teams. 

Nicola McCafferty in Dundee and Aimee Gibbons in Glasgow have been appointed as commercial real estate partners, while Hannah Fraser in Edinburgh becomes a residential property partner.

Ms Gibbons began her career as a trainee with Thorntons in 2013; Ms McCafferty joined the firm as an associate in 2016; and Ms Fraser joined through the Pagan Osborne Merger in 2017.

Managing partner Lesley Larg commented: "It is always a privilege to promote from within as we pride ourselves on offering excellent training and development opportunities for all of our people across the firm.

"Nicola, Aimee and Hannah are fantastic examples of three different avenues to senior leadership at Thorntons... Their achievements in a traditionally male-dominated area of Scottish law are highly commendable and will be a great boost for our network of colleagues and clients in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee.

"I have every confidence they will each continue to lead the firm to help our clients, colleagues and communities succeed."
