Legal firm Balfour+Manson has appointed two associates to its Aberdeen and Edinburgh offices.

Kirsten Lobban becomes the first dedicated member of the family law team to be based in Aberdeen. Previously with Ledingham Chalmers, she is experienced in a wide range of family matters and is a trained collaborative solicitor.

Jamie Robb, who joins from Levy & McRae, will work with the litigation team in the Edinburgh office specialising in personal injury and medical negligence. He has extensive experience in pursuing personal injury claims ranging from employer liability and road traffic accidents to medical negligence claims, including high value, complex commercial cases.

Partner Julie Clark-Spence, head of the Aberdeen office, commented: “We are excited to now have a dedicated member of the family team in Aberdeen. This means our clients here are able to get a full range of personal injury, medical negligence, employment and family advice that is bespoke to their needs.”
