Highland law firm Macleod and MacCallum is expanding its residential conveyancing and family law teams with the appointment of two newly qualified solicitors.

Rory Carson and Gemma Johnston both gained their law degrees and diplomas in legal practice at Aberdeen University before returning to Inverness, where they secured traineeships with Macleod and MacCallum in June 2019.

Macleod and MacCallum board chairwoman Morag MacIntosh commented:“At Macleod and MacCallum we recognise the difficulties people have faced during the last 18 months, and it has been a challenging time for our trainee solicitors and their mentors.

"It is a testament to the hard work and commitment shown by Rory and Gemma that saw them excel throughout their traineeships in such unusual circumstances.

“At Macleod and MacCallum we have always prided ourselves on attracting some of the best homegrown talent to our team, offering our trainees real career prospects whilst being able to enjoy life in the Highlands of Scotland.”

Rory spends his free time playing rugby for Highland Rugby Club, where he started training from the age of five before going on to play at every level, including Scottish National League. He also finds time to help with training and coaching and keep golf his handicap at a very impressive two.

When not at work Gemma can be found helping with local Highland dance classes, a skill she herself learned from an early age, before going on to dance competitively from the age of 10.
