Firm set to provide enhanced legal services in the Kingdom
BOYD Legal Solicitors is further expanding its operation by opening a new base in Fife with a pledge to provide ‘fresh and locally-focused’ enhanced legal services in the Kingdom.
The firm has moved into showpiece offices at 1 Townsend Place in Kirkcaldy as a stepped move to develop its presence in Fife, especially for private client legal services.
Managing Director Peter Boyd said: “We are a family firm with a family-run ethos.
“That means we are big enough to offer high quality levels of expertise that smaller legal practices in Fife may find difficult to provide, yet we can be accessible and approachable at all times.
“Fundamentally we aim to deliver personal service and affordable fees – and to be centrally located in Fife where people can find us or we can get easily to them. One of our commitments is to be mobile and to offer home visits as a standard service.
“We will be encouraging clients to be more proactive in reviewing their affairs, such as a ‘New for Old’ Wills service or ensuring they are considering all options for later life care such as equity release or asset protection.”
The office, which is to be officially launched in a charity fundraising event on March 1, is to offer clients a free Will review service 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.
Peter Aitken, former proprietor of Gibson & Spears, Dow & Son, will continue to be the main principal but the Kirkcaldy team will augmented with the appointment of experienced corporate/commercial solicitor Kelly Matthews.
The new business will offer commercial, corporate, wills and estates, later life and family legal services with full back-up services from Boyd Legal’s HQ in Edinburgh.
Peter Aitken, who has been a respected figure in Fife legal and civic circles for a considerable number of years, said: “While I have worked in the legal sector in the Kingdom all my life, the expansion of Boyd Legal is a really exciting time for me – and I believe anyone who requires a legal service in Fife.”
Kelly Matthews graduated from Edinburgh University and her early career in corporate and commercial work was with Dundee-based Blackadders. She had a short spell with Thorntons’ Corporate team in St Andrews, advising high growth and technology clients before joining the Commercial Team at Russel & Aitken in Falkirk.
Kelly’s specialty is in assisting entrepreneurs and company boards on all manner of commercial matters; from securing equity investment or conducting due diligence on a business, through to helping them review critical contracts with suppliers or customers or handling shareholder disputes.
