Boyd Legal Solicitors has underlined its continued growth ambitions by appointing a new Associate to its expanded base in Fife.

Kelly Matthews joins the team at Boyd Legal’s new showpiece office in Kirkcaldy to support the firm’s drive to deepen its commitment to the community in the Kingdom.

Kelly brings with her more than seven years’ of experience in a range of different corporate and commercial matters, ranging from asset sales and purchases and equity investment to company re-organisations and shareholder and partnership agreements.

She joins the firm from Russel + Aitken in Falkirk, where she also acquired commercial property skills.

She will now operate from Boyd Legal’s new location at 1 Townsend Place and help to deliver a bespoke, locally-focused service to clients.

Kelly said: “I was excited by the opportunity to work with Boyd Legal in their continued commitment to the people of Kirkcaldy, following the merger three years ago. The investment in the new offices emphasizes that pledge to Fife.

“I’ve worked for a broad range of clients across a number of sectors which I feel stands me in good stead for this new role.

“I’ll work alongside consultant solicitor Peter Aitken in my new position and assist clients in all commercial and private client matters.

“The experience I’ve gained with clients ranging in size from start-ups to established and recognizable names, means we’re well equipped to provide the tailored service underpinned by local knowledge that people are looking for.”

Kelly’s new role will see her assist entrepreneurs and company boards on all manner of commercial matters.

This will include advising on business structures, property sales, purchases and leasing, through to helping them review critical contracts with suppliers or shareholder disputes.

Peter Boyd, Managing Director of Boyd Legal, said: “We pride ourselves on being a family law firm; one large enough to offer high quality service and levels of expertise, while retaining a personal touch for our clients.

“That’s why Kelly’s appointment is so exciting. She combines a wealth of knowledge with a personality than ensures clients won’t feel overwhelmed when she’s working for them.

“We will offer a first-class service at an affordable price, while our central location means people can easily find us or we can get to them with our home/business visit offering.”

Boyd Legal’s new office was officially launched in an event on 1 March which donated funds to the Kirkcaldy High School music department; some of its pupils performed on the evening. The firm is to offer clients a free will review session to celebrate its opening.

Boyd Legal, a full service practice headquartered in Edinburgh, had previously acquired Kirkcaldy-based Gibson & Spears, Dow & Son and was operating from their East Fergus Place office. Boyd Legal also operates from offices in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness.

The Fife business will offer commercial, corporate, wills and estates, later life and family legal services with full support from Boyd Legal’s HQ in Edinburgh.
