MacDonald Lynch appoint new partner
23 June 2022
Glasgow southside solicitors MacDonald Lynch have appointed a new partner, just a year after it launched.
Robert Telfer, who joined the new firm at launch in May 2021, will join the experienced leadership team of Elaine MacDonald and Colin Carr from 4 July.
Fast growing MacDonald Lynch was formed after Elaine MacDonald acquired the long running southside firm Lynch & Co, first established in 1984. The rebranded and expanded Mount Florida firm now employs eight people.
The company provides a range of legal services including residential and commercial conveyancing, wills, estates, power of attorney and family law. Earlier this year it expanded to provide estate agency services, in conjunction with Residence Estate Agents.
Robert Telfer has a Doctorate in European Competition and Consumer Law from the University of Glasgow, where he also completed his Diploma in Professional Legal Practice. As well as legal practice, he has also worked in real estate.
As a solicitor, he specialises in conveyancing, wills, power of attorney and estates.
Robert Telfer said: “I am delighted to be appointed as a partner at MacDonald Lynch. Our first year has been challenging but hugely rewarding and I proud of what we have achieved together in such a short time. Our commitment to excellent client service has been well recognised by our customers and we are continuing to expand our range of services. We have a great team at MacDonald Lynch and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.”
Senior Partner Elaine MacDonald added: “Robert has been with us from day one and has been a tremendous source of support for me and the wider team. His promotion illustrates the enormous contribution he has made to the company and the wide range of skills he brings to bear.
“I greatly value his counsel and I know that he will make an outstanding partner as we grow the business and continue to deliver exceptional customer service.”
