Tayside legal firm Miller Hendry has announced promotions across its three offices in Perth, Dundee and Crieff.

Mhairi Cage, based in Perth, has been promoted to senior associate, as has Crieff-based Julie Darroch, while Lindsay Kirkwood in Dundee has been promoted to senior solicitor.

Ms Cage and Ms Kirkwood both began with the firm as trainees and work in private client, dealing with wills, succession and inheritance tax planning, among other matters. Ms Kirkwood, who qualified in 2017, has since achieved the STEP Diploma in Trust and Estates (Scotland).

Ms Darroch, the third generation of her family to work for the firm, practised in Edinburgh before starting at Miller Hendry in 2014. She specialises in all aspects of residential property work, and as senior associate will will be responsible for helping the growth of the business in Crieff.

Miller Hendry chairman John Thom commented: "We're delighted to start the year with a series of promotions for our extremely hardworking team, which span all three of our offices in Tayside. Mhairi, Julie and Lindsay are exceptional staff members, who thoroughly deserve their promotions. They will be an integral part of the firm as we move the business forward and realise our ambitious plans for growth in Tayside."
