LINDSAYS, the growing Scottish legal firm for people and businesses, is continuing its investment in the future with the recruitment of five new trainees.

They join Lindsays following a competitive recruitment process which attracted a high calibre of applicants to take up the positions in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.

The five have started their training in a variety of departments:

  • Michael Higgins, Personal Injury (Glasgow)
  • Scott Briggs, Private Client (Glasgow)
  • Dylan Ackerley, Dispute Resolution and Litigation (Edinburgh)
  • James Siwela, Commercial Property (Edinburgh)
  • Jennifer Philp, Private Client (Dundee)

Over the course of two years, each trainee will gain experience across a range of different areas of law.

Lindsays has a proud history of training lawyers who finish their careers as they started them – at Lindsays.

Managing Partner Alasdair Cummings, who himself trained at the firm, said: “It is vital that we invest in the future of Lindsays and Scotland’s legal profession, so I am delighted to welcome our new trainees to the team.

“Over the course of their traineeship they will, of course, learn more about the law in practice and how it affects peoples’ lives and businesses, but also about the Lindsays way, which puts relationships before transactions.

“Our firm centres on people – the clients we are proud to work for and the colleagues we are pleased to work alongside. Those positive relationships lie at the heart of all that we do and are why, I believe, we have such a strong track record in training fantastic lawyers.”
