Trio of new Partner appointments at Mackinnons

Mackinnons Solicitors LLP has appointed three new partners across its property and marine commercial teams.

ANGUS EASTON, who has many years of experience in marine and commercial shipping work advising clients on charter parties, ship sales and purchases, joint ventures and fisheries law, has been promoted to Partner within the Marine Commercial Team.

GREGOR SIM, previously a Partner with James & George Collie, has been promoted to Partner from Senior Associate in the firm’s property department, specialising in rural, residential and private client work.

PAMELA BURSILL, who has almost 30 years experience in residential property work advising clients on Deeside and beyond, joined Mackinnons in 2021 and has now been promoted to Partner in the busy and fast expanding property team.

Pat Gray, one of the firm’s senior partners, said;

“I am delighted to welcome Angus, Gregor and Pamela as Partners in Mackinnons and congratulate them on their well deserved promotions. The trio of new Partner appointments is further evidence of our investment in first rate legal talent and ability as Mackinnons continue to focus on supporting our clients by delivering premium legal advice, guidance and reassurance.

The new generation of lawyers coming through the firm are extremely capable, hard working, and most importantly, share the same values as those who have gone before them. We see a positive, strong and successful future ahead and look forward to working with our three new Partners and to taking the firm to even greater places in the years to come.”

Residential Property Quarterly Reflections and Insights

The latest quarterly report from the ASPC gives a reassuring picture of local market activity, with the house price index remaining, mostly, in the positive. The change in quarterly price is +1.5%, while the annual change is -0.5%. Taken over five years, the index is marginally positive at +0.4%. While the figures are reassuring, it may well be that our local market is yet to feel the strain of the general economic background and only time will tell whether this will be reflected in the remainder of 2023. Buyers’ wariness over the short term may well affect property sales as they effectively “sit tight” to see what happens with interest rates. This may result in a sluggish Autumn/Winter market as moving plans are put on hold, but for the moment, there is still healthy demand for properties in desirable locations and in good condition.
