Gilson Gray poaches Aberdeen-based property partner

Gilson Gray has appointed Richard Shepherd as partner in its property team.

Bringing more than 30 years of experience, he joins as the practice continues to accelerate its growth in the North East region.

Based in Aberdeen, Shepherd joins the law firm from rival James & George Collie, where he has been the managing partner since 2014.

Having studied law at Aberdeen University and spent his entire career in the area, his local knowledge will play a pivotal role as Gilson Gray looks to grow in Aberdeen and the surrounding area.

Murray Stewart, partner and head of real estate at Gilson Gray, said: “Richard’s appointment is a key step in our growth.

“His well-established relationships throughout the area, coupled with his decades of local experience will enhance our offering in the North East.”

Shepherd commented: “This was an opportunity I could not turn down.

“The Aberdeen market has experienced a particularly turbulent time of late, however, when the market is in flux, creativity, the use of technology and innovation always come to the fore.

“With Gilson Gray’s reputation for doing things a little differently, it’s a perfect fit both for me, and the changing market, right now.”
