Miller Hendry has underlined its strong commitment to Crieff with the announcement of two new faces joining the firm’s Comrie Street team.
David J. Smart has taken the decision to move to Miller Hendry as an Associate following the closure of Graham & Finlayson after the retiral of their Senior Partner Robert B.A. Bolton. David’s colleague and experienced paralegal Liz Dawson is also making the move.
A Past President and currently Treasurer of The Rotary Club of Crieff, David is well-known in the Strath capital having joined Graham & Finlayson in 1989, first as an Assistant Solicitor and latterly becoming a Partner in 1991.
David brings his extensive expertise in domestic conveyancing to Miller Hendry clients. He handles general chamber work such as preparation of Wills and Powers of Attorney, and is also a Notary Public.
Music plays a significant part in David’s leisure time. Married to a professional musician, the couple have two daughters, one currently studying music at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) and the other an RCS music graduate.
He is also a keen sportsman who still regularly plays golf and badminton, when time permits.
A spokesperson for Miller Hendry said: “These appointments underline our commitment to Crieff and the wider Strathearn area. We always aim to recruit, retain and develop the highest calibre lawyers and support staff, who can in turn nurture long-lasting relationships with our clients.
“David brings nearly 30 years of outstanding legal knowledge to Miller Hendry and I am delighted to welcome David and Liz to the team.”
Following the closure of Graham & Finlayson, all the deeds, wills and documents held by the firm will also transfer to Miller Hendry’s Crieff office.
