Macleod and MacCallum Welcome Newly Qualified Solicitors
Macleod and MacCallum announce the expansion of their Residential Conveyancing and Family Law Teams with newly qualified solicitors Rory Carson and Gemma Johnston taking up permanent positions.
Rory and Gemma both gained their Law Degrees and Diplomas in Legal Practice at Aberdeen University before returning to Inverness, where both secured Traineeships with Macleod and MacCallum in June 2019.
Chair of the Board Morag MacIntosh commented, “At Macleod and MacCallum we recognise the difficulties people have faced during the last 18 months, and it has been a challenging time for our Trainee solicitors and their mentors. It is a testament to the hard work and commitment shown by Rory and Gemma that saw them excel throughout their traineeships in such unusual circumstances.”
Morag went on to explain “At Macleod and MacCallum we have always prided ourselves on attracting some of the best homegrown talent to our team, offering our Trainees real career prospects whilst being able to enjoy life in the Highlands of Scotland”.
Rory spends his free time playing Rugby for Highland Rugby Club, where he started training from the age of five. Rory went on to play at every level including Scottish National League and also finds time to help with training and coaching. He also likes to keep golf his handicap at a very impressive two.
When not at work Gemma can be found helping with local Highland Dance classes, a skill she herself learned from an early age, before going on to dance competitively from the age of ten.
