Jackson Boyd CSR | Corporate Social Responsibility Team

New Partners and Promotions

Jackson Boyd LLP are delighted to announce 5 new Promotions that will take effect from 1 May 2021.

Laura Macdonald is being promoted to Partner in the Employment team which she currently leads.  Laura has been with Jackson Boyd for over 12 years having trained with the firm.  Laura is an experienced and accomplished solicitor and highly regarded by her clients and by her peers. The employment team deals with complex cases on behalf of both employers and employees but the processes that have been introduced by Laura ensure that cases are dealt with expertly and efficiently by her and the team. The feedback that is received from clients of the employment team is exceptional and testament to the customer centric approach that Laura has instilled. Laura’s promotion is richly deserved and she will no doubt continue to make a significant contribution to the success of the Firm in the coming years.

In our Dispute Resolution Team, Alan Cameron is being promoted to Partner.  Alan has also been with Jackson Boyd for over 12 years. His employment with the firm coincided with  Jackson Boyd diversifying into the areas of general and commercial litigation.  Since then the team has expanded, as has their client base and indeed as has the range and complexity of the work they undertake. Alan has proven himself to an excellent solicitor with an ability to deal with complex legal matters in an efficient yet customer focussed manner.  He also performs a significant supervisory role, sharing his wealth of experience with others in the team. Alan is an integral part of both the Dispute Resolution Team and the wider Firm and his promotion is a reflection of his dedication and commitment during his time with us. We have no doubt that he will excel in his new role.

Within Jackson Boyd’s Personal Injury Team, Dave Berry is to be promoted to Senior Associate. Dave trained with the firm and has been with us for over 10 years. He specialises in cases involving clinical negligence, employers’ liability and public liability. In Legal 500 he is described as “well regarded” and “provides an impressive service to (his) clients.” He is an excellent lawyer with a commercial focus while always prioritising the needs of his clients.

Jennifer Rowlinson is to be promoted to Senior Solicitor within the Personal Injury Team. Like Laura and Dave, Jennifer completed her traineeship with Jackson Boyd. Since qualifying she has dealt with a wide range of cases arising from Road Traffic Accidents. Despite  only qualifying two years ago she has significant advocacy experience and also provides excellent support to the firm’s pre litigation teams.

Within our Finance team, Vikki Boyd is to be promoted to the role of Management Accountant. Vikki joined the firm as an apprentice over 6 years ago. Since then she has attained her professional accountancy qualifications. Her ability to combine her studies with her full time role in our Finance Team has been particularly impressive and indicative of her positive work ethic.

Alan Macdonald, our Managing Partner, said, “We are delighted to announce these promotions at the end of a challenging year. They are a testament to the talent of each individual, their hard work and their commitment to Jackson Boyd and our clients. They also represent our ongoing commitment to create opportunities for progression for talented people across the firm.

“In particular, I am delighted that Alan and Laura are being promoted to Partners within Jackson Boyd and warmly congratulate them both. Our focus is to provide a first class service to our clients based on the quality of legal advice we provide and Alan and Laura excel at this.”
