A well-known and experienced lawyer, Emma Gray, has joined Blackadders as partner and head of the firm’s commercial property team. Emma joins the firm having trained and worked for the last 13 years with a pre-eminent Scottish commercial law firm.

Commenting on her appointment, Emma Gray said “I am delighted to be joining  Blackadders. The firm has an excellent reputation in legal circles and I am determined to add value to what is already a hugely experienced and well-respected property team. I look forward to helping my new colleagues develop and expand our commercial property service in Scotland.”

Lindsay Darroch, partner and head of the 52-strong property team at Blackadders, which covers residential, rural and commercial property, described the appointment of Emma as “a superb hire for us”.

He continued: “I am delighted to welcome Emma to the property team, she joins us with a wealth of experience, enthusiasm and energy and her skills and quality will enhance our service in this important area of our business. We already have an experienced commercial property team which deals with a number of transactions of all sizes for a wide range of local, national and international clients and this major appointment is in line with our business strategy and demonstrates our decision to expand and strengthen our expertise and services to clients in this area.”
