North-east legal firm Raeburn Christie Clark & Wallace (RCC&W) has announced the appointment of a further three partners and a consultant.
Neil Fraser, Barbara Calderwood and Jennifer Burnett join as partners, while Gordon Davidson joins the company as a consultant. Together, they bring more than 60 years of experience to the firm.
The appointments come after it was revealed that Alasdair Smith, a former partner with Burness Paull, joined the firm as head of corporate.
Managing partner Keith Allan said: “Raeburn Christie Clark & Wallace is investing in a robust and experienced team, which complements the company’s ambitions. These appointments will further boost our offering and create an enhanced client experience.”
Mr Fraser, formerly a partner with John Jackson & Dick in Hamilton, and more recently Aberdein Considine in Aberdeen, will head up the firm’s employment department.
Commercial property specialist Ms Calderwood, who joined the company as a consultant in May 2014, was formerly a partner with Morton Fraser in Glasgow.
Ms Burnett was previously a partner with Stewart & Watson in Turriff and joined RCC&W in August 2014 as an associate solicitor, dealing with private client business.
Mr Davidson was previously a partner at Paull & Williamsons for 14 years and more recently a consultant with Burness Paull until joining RCC&W.
