Catriona Torrance

Senior Associate

Having had a previous career in financial services marketing, I qualified as a solicitor in 2006. I joined Balfour+Manson in July 2015, changed firms in October 2020, and returned to Balfour+Manson in October 2023. I have always specialised in private client matters, and enjoy meeting and getting to know clients, building relationships as a trusted advisor to them and their family. Every client, their personal, family and financial circumstances, is different and this means my job is always varied and very interesting – it’s all about people.

My specialism is in personal law including all aspects of wills, powers of attorney, succession planning, and trusts. I am very experienced in dealing with winding up estates (executry administration) including complex and contentious estates, as well as advising on legal rights which are particular to Scots law. I enjoy working closely with our client welfare manager, assisting vulnerable or older clients at key times of their lives, putting provisions in place for the future or practical assistance in the present.

Away from work, I have recently completed a vinyasa yoga teacher training course, and also enjoy swimming to keep fit. I read a lot and look forward to my regular bookgroup meetings, enjoy film, theatre and ballet and have two teenage sons who keep me entertained and busy too.
