New appointment in Aberdeen Family team

Balfour+Manson in Aberdeen has strengthened its team in north east Scotland with the appointment of Anne McTaggart who joins as Partner within its Family Law team.
A practising solicitor since 1976, Anne McTaggart is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a Family Law Specialist and Solicitor Mediator. She graduated from Aberdeen University and has spent her entire working life in Aberdeen, initially within two medium sized firms, before joining Stronachs in 1986 and appointed an Associate in 1988.  The emphasis of her work moved from general litigation to primarily Family Law and she was assumed a Partner in 1994.
In 2003, she formed the specialist family practice of McIntosh McTaggart which continued until last month.  Over these years, Anne has gained an excellent reputation throughout Aberdeen and the surrounding area as a most highly experienced Family Law practitioner. She advises on all aspects of Family and Child Law in the Sheriff Court.
Julie Clark-Spence, who heads up Balfour+Manson Aberdeen office, comments:
“We are delighted to have someone of Anne’s calibre join our team. Her experience in family law is prodigious and demonstrates a commitment to growing our Aberdeen office by providing a quality range of services to clients both in the city and the wider north east environment.”
Elaine Motion, Executive Chairman of Balfour+Manson, added: 
“We are delighted to have Anne on board to add to our great team in Aberdeen. Anne has built a commanding reputation as one of the most respected legal figures in Aberdeen law circles, so her appointment as partner is a huge fillip for us.”
Balfour+Manson is one of Scotland’s longest-established legal firms, founded in 1888. The firm currently employs over 130 people in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. The firm opened an office in Aberdeen in 2004 and moved to its location, 42 Carden Place after joining forces with long-established city firm Duthie Ward in June 2016.
