As part of our continued growth and following the winning of two Scottish Law Firm of the Year awards in 2021, Jones Whyte have today announced the promotion of 2 key members of staff, with Nick Hay and Ross Anderson both being promoted to the position of Partner.
One of our longest serving employees, Nick started his Traineeship with Jones Whyte in 2014, shortly after the firm’s inception. Since qualifying in 2016 Nick has developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise in dealing with all types of residential and commercial conveyancing, leading to his promotion to Associate in March 2020. Today, Nick is an integral part of our Property & Conveyancing team and has played a significant role in developing the department into one of the country’s leading conveyancing providers.
Ross Anderson joined Jones Whyte in April 2021 following the administrationof McClure Solicitors, having worked there for 7 years, progressing his way up to Associate. Possessing considerable knowledge and experience of both Scottish and English Trust Law, Ross recently became dual qualified as a solicitor in both jurisdictions.
Ross Jones, Joint Managing Partner commented:
“We are extremely pleased to announce these promotions today. It is hugely rewarding and incredibly important to see our team continuing to develop and progress. As a relatively young firm, we place great emphasis on giving our team’s real accountability along with continued training and development, equipping us to succeed and win for our clients.
Nick Hay is a fantastic example of this ethos in practice, progressing rapidly up through our firm in the last 8 years. In this time, the firm has grown from a small start up to an award winning, multi service law firm with a 200-person strong team, and Nick has been an integral part of that development. This promotion is testament to Nick’s hard work and dedication and is thoroughly deserved.
Ross Anderson has been an invaluable asset to Jones Whyte in managing a challenging transition for both former clients and staff of McClure, as well as being key to our strategy in developing our own Private Client service offering. Ross complements sound technical ability with great managerial and leadership skills and has been a fantastic addition to our team.
I, and everyone at Jones Whyte, look forward to working closely with both Nick & Ross in their new roles as we look to build on recent successes & continue to grow and develop the firm.”
