SECOND home buyers in Scotland need to factor another expense into their plans, after the Scottish Government’s recent introduction of a supplementary land and buildings transaction tax (LBTT) charge.

A SENIOR solicitor from Stronachs LLP has been named one of the top two Scottish candidates in a recent specialist exam set by the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

Kirsten Anderson achieved the joint-highest score in the Trusts (Law and Practice) exam, and is now one assessment away from achieving full STEP accreditation.

Kirsten, a member of Stronachs’ private client team, said that studying for the qualification had provided an excellent opportunity to expand her knowledge and experience.

A ladies’ afternoon tea party organised by Stronachs LLP raised more than £10,000 for CLAN – seeing the law firm reach its annual target for its chosen charity in a matter of hours.

More than 80 women attended the sold out “Tea in the Park” event at Hazlehead Park, with guests contributing to CLAN through raffle tickets, bidding on auction prizes and taking part in games. 

Firm also confirms associate and senior solicitor promotions

Stronachs LLP, the full service independent law firm, has announced the appointment of family law practitioner Michelle Fearn as an associate in its dispute resolution team, alongside three internal promotions.

Miss Fearn joins from McIntosh McTaggart, where she focussed on the constructive resolution of family law disputes for more than five years. Miss Fearn graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2004 and qualified as a solicitor in 2007.

A group of lawyers from Stronachs LLP are swapping their legal documents for sheet music as they prepare to deliver a one-off performance at a ladies’ afternoon tea party, organised by the law firm in honour of CLAN.

The “Tea in the Park” event will take place at The Park Cafe at Hazlehead Park on Friday, June 3, with all proceeds being contributed to CLAN, the law firm’s nominated charity for 2016.
Entertainment will be provided by an acoustic ensemble formed by Stronachs personnel. Partner Liz Stewart, will be the group’s lead singer with accompaniment on guitar and vocals from partner and solicitor advocate, Robert McDonald and solicitor Jamie Wilson.

A family run jewellery business in Inverurie has spent weeks designing and creating an exquisite bespoke necklace, to be auctioned at a fundraising event hosted by Stronachs LLP for local charity CLAN Cancer Support.

Steve Mitchell, goldsmith at Sinclairs in Inverurie, based the design of the necklace on the CLAN logo, with a 12 carat amethyst stone secured in a sterling silver setting and displayed on a twenty inch chain

Staff from Stronachs LLP are close to completing a “bar-to-10k” training programme ahead of next week’s Baker Hughes race – which kicks off their firm’s year-long commitment to supporting CLAN.

A group of 14 Stronachs personnel, including partners, solicitors and support workers, have been training on their lunch breaks in preparation for the 10k route in Aberdeen on Sunday, May 15.

Transferring properties into company ownership has become a hot topic, as changes in tax rules spur those with a portfolio on to looking at the best way to manage their assets, and plan for gifting to family members in the future.
