Record round of partner promotions at Lindsays

Record round of partner promotions at Lindsays

Lindsays has promoted a record number of its lawyers to partner.

The five-strong cohort who have made the step up represent the largest single round of promotions to partner that the firm has made.

Another six lawyers have also been promoted across a number of departments and offices.



Clare Wilson’s promotion to partner in the commercial property team, based in Glasgow, highlights Lindsays’ commitment to professional development. She has climbed the ranks having first joined as a trainee solicitor in September 2007.

In the employment law team, Daniel Gorry has made the step up to partner just a year after joining Lindsays as a director, based in Glasgow.

David Walker, meanwhile, has been with Lindsays for almost 11 years. He was previously the firm’s risk and compliance director in Edinburgh and his promotion to partner will develop that role.

Leanne Gordon has also been promoted from director to partner, with the rural services team in Edinburgh. She has worked with the firm since 2015 when she joined as a solicitor. She took time away for a year before rejoining in March 2023.



Nicole Noble takes the step up to partner in the private client department, based in Edinburgh. She first joined Lindsays through its merger with Hadden Rankin in 2019.

Managing partner Alasdair Cummings said: “To provide the high calibre advice that we strive to share with the people and businesses with whom we work, we need good people in our team. These latest promotions highlight our commitment to not only recruiting the right people, but offering them the opportunities to develop their careers with Lindsays.”

Nina Taylor, chair, said: “Lindsays has an enviable track record for recognising emerging talent in the legal profession and offering excellent opportunities to progress. Having started as an associate with the firm, I am proof of that and believe strongly in ensuring others have those same chances.

“I am looking forward to working with my colleagues in their new roles as I too settle into mine.”
