Member of the Week - Macleod and MacCallum
Macleod and MacCallum have been serving clients across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland for over 50 years. Now employing over 65 members of staff, the firm have in this time developed a full range of legal, property and financial services enabling them to effectively and efficiently deal with and respond to the needs of clients, whether individuals or businesses. The firm are delighted to be shortlisted as finalists in this year's Legal Awards of Scotland in the Family Law Firm of the Year category, against very strong central belt competition. The final is on 30th March in Edinburgh and the Family Law team are extremely proud to have reached this stage.
Over the course of this week, we’ll be looking at various units within Macleod and MacCallum including: Lettings Department, Property Department, Rural Land, Private Client, and Family Law. Today’s focus is the Private Client Department.
The Private Client Department at Macleod and MacCallum deal with all aspects of Wills and Powers of Attorney as well as Guardianships and Executory Administration.
The department is headed by one of the firm’s consultants, Neil Speight, who joined Macleod and MacCallum in 2016 from MacNeill & Critchley, where he was a partner for many years. Neil has over 26 years’ experience in general legal practice and throughout that period has been involved in residential, commercial, and rural conveyancing work and in dealing with Wills, Executories and Powers of Attorney.
Working alongside Neil in the private client team are Katie Mahony, Donna Clark and Lisa McIntyre.
Katie is a qualified solicitor who joined Macleod and MacCallum in 2016 and currently deals principally with guardianship work and with executory administration.
Donna and Lisa are both fully qualified Registered Executory Paralegals who each have many years’ experience, in dealing with executory administration, involving estates of all sizes, and with guardianships.
The legal team is supported by Janis Richards and Julia Gibson and together aim to provide a service to clients that is efficient, friendly and sensitive. This is particularly important given the difficult circumstances in which some clients find themselves when they turn to the firm for assistance. Collectively, the private client team has a broad ranging wealth of experience in these fields and aim to bring that experience to bear in the work that they do for clients across the Highlands and Islands.
