National law firm Weightmans has made a partner appointment to its real estate team in Glasgow.

Cassandra Auld, formerly a senior associate at Pinsent Masons, brings experience in commercial property transactions, working for both public and private sector clients across a number of sectors, with a particular interest in hotels, retail and leisure and healthcare industries.

Weightmans partner and head of real estate Scotland, Bryan Finlayson, said: “We are delighted to welcome Cassy to the firm. She has proven ability to manage and deliver complex, high value and technically challenging real estate transactions whilst maintaining an outstanding commitment to clients. She is a highly valuable addition to the team.”

The Weightmans real estate team in Scotland is also due to welcome a newly qualified solicitor this month, bringing the team number up to six.
