Respected property lawyer Lindsay Darroch has joined Aberdein Considine as a partner to lead its expansion across Tayside.
Darroch moves after 20 years at Blackadders and will have responsibility for Aberdein Considine’s existing Perth office and its new Dundee office at the Flour Mill building.
The 48-year-old’s previous role included eight years on the board of the Tayside Solicitors Property Centre.
He acts for a wide range of clients including private individuals, developers and property investors across Tayside.
Darroch said: “Aberdein Considine is a national law firm with an enviable track record in estate agency, property and private client services.
“It is committed to serving its clients both locally and digitally. No other law firm offers the diversity of service lines, including independent financial services, across Scotland.
“The business is moving into Dundee at an exciting time for the city, with the delivery of the Waterfront Development. It is also a period of rising demand for property in the area.
“It is a clear vote of confidence in the regional economy, and the firm’s desire to offer clients national service at a local level.”
Darroch is also a trustee at DFC in the Community Trust, a board member at Caledonia Housing Association and Clerk & Boxmaster at The Nine Incorporated Trades of Dundee.
He will see clients in both the Perth High Street and Dundee offices.
Michael Sinclair, senior property partner at Aberdein Considine, said: “For decades, Lindsay has been a leading figure in the property sector, and for many is the go-to expert on the Dundee and Tayside markets.
“His extensive experience is drawn on by individuals, companies and trusts who appreciate his hands-on advice.
“We already have a strong presence in the Angus market to the north and the Perth & Kinross market to the south, and Lindsay’s appointment will allow us to extend this in Dundee with a well-respected local solicitor who has a love and passion for the area.”
