GLASGOW-headquartered Complete Clarity Solicitors and Simplicity Legal has announced a strategic senior appointment which will significantly enhance its presence in property and conveyancing, leading to positive growth in market share. 

The firm, which also has offices in Edinburgh and Dumfries, has secured the services of Nat Alexander, 46, from Troon in Ayrshire, who has an impressive track record in residential transactions across the country. 

Joining from McKinstry’s in Ayr, Mr Alexander will be Senior Associate Solicitor and will head up the Complete Clarity property team which consists of five solicitors, three trainees and a legal assistant, and which currently is actively recruiting. 

Property provides in the region of 10% of the firm’s income at the moment and the intention of the newly focused team is to increase this figure by between 40% to 50% within the first year. 

Mr Alexander said: “I am delighted to be joining a firm which has established its own unique corporate culture, and which has a policy of creating the best possible legal environment for its staff. Its hybrid working model is very attractive. 

“The team I will lead has great expertise and is very motivated and I will contribute 15 years of experience in property matters and conveyancing as well as insights into the markets and geographical areas which will be our primary focus. 

“I came to law later than normal, having initially taken an arts degree and spent 10 years with the Department of Work and Pensions, so I will also be contributing a valuable suite of life experience.” 

Founded in 2010, Complete Clarity also owns Simplicity Legal, which it established in 2015 with the aim of filling a gap in the market for fixed fee family law work, and merged with in 2017. 

It posted turnover of £1.5 million in May this year, up from £1.1 million last time, and has boosted its headcount to 25, including 12 qualified solicitors, three trainee solicitors, and a four-strong client services team. whose activities have been critical in supporting the most recent fee performance. 

Billy Smith, Director of Complete Clarity and Simplicity Legal, said: “Everyone in the firm is very pleased to have been able to attract a professional of Nat Alexander’s calibre and he will make a terrific contribution to our growth ambitions. 

“He not only has a comprehensive knowledge of the law, but also a great experience of the world outside the law, and this is a perfect fit with our system of attracting talent from non-traditional routes. 

“The property team is an increasingly important contributor to the firm’s success and, under Nat’s leadership, I am confident that it will go from strength to strength.” 

Complete Clarity typically hires diploma students and brings them on to be legal assistants, then trainees before fully qualifying as solicitors. It has some lateral hires, but most practising staff have come through the firm’s bespoke recruitment process. 

Mr Alexander will work from home and the Glasgow office in Woodlands Road. His outside interests include keeping up with his family of four children, as well as running and exercising.
