Two new partners are among five solicitors recognised with promotion at Lindsays.

Lauren Pasi, promoted to senior associate only last October, has become a partner in the firm’s Personal Injury team. She joined Lindsays as a senior solicitor with the Personal Injury team from Brodies in February 2017, becoming an associate in October that year.

Darren Leahy has been appointed as a partner in the Commercial Property team. He joined through the RSB Macdonald merger in July 2015 as a solicitor and was promoted to associate before becoming a senior associate in April 2018.  

Both were congratulated on their appointments in a videoconference with Lindsays' managing partner Alasdair Cummings and chairman Peter Tweedie. The firm is maintaining a full service to clients through remote working during the coronavirus pandemic.

The other three solicitors promoted are:

  • Sharon Drysdale, who becomes a senior associate as part of the Rural team;
  • Kirsty Preston, now an associate in the Private Client department, having joined the firm as a senior solicitor in June 2018;
  • Julie Malone, now an associate in the Residential Property team, having first joined the firm as a solicitor in August 2015.

Mr Cummings commented: “These promotions are not only testament to talent and hard work, but demonstrate the strength and depth of the people who are at the forefront of Lindsays’ offer to the people and businesses with whom we work.

“The fact that our two new partners have been able to climb the ranks following mergers is particularly pleasing, highlighting the strength and talent that these moves have brought to our business. We remain keen to pursue other merger opportunities; good people make good things happen.”
