Aberdein Considine promotes legal specialists as growth continues

Aberdein Considine has moved to strengthen its legal teams with the appointment of a new Partner and Senior Associate.

Gemma Perfect, who is based at the firm’s flagship headquarters in Aberdeen, has been promoted from Associate to Partner in the Commercial Real Estate team. Gemma joined Aberdein Considine as a trainee solicitor in 2007 after completing her diploma in legal practice at the University of Aberdeen.

She specialises primarily in commercial property matters, dealing with acquisitions and disposals, as well as commercial leasing, residential developments and bank security and financing.

Gemma also has expertise in residential property transactions and complex corrective conveyancing, acting on behalf of both lenders and insolvency practitioners in relation to residential and commercial issues. 

Carly Stewart joined Aberdein Considine’s Dispute Resolution team as an Associate in 2019, and has been promoted to Senior Associate.

Carly, who is also based in Aberdeen, brings over 15 years’ experience in commercial litigation, qualifying as a Solicitor Advocate in 2011 with rights of audience in both the Court of Session and the UK’s Supreme Court.

Much of her career has been involved with advising oil and gas related clients as well as those in the construction and insurance industries. She has also developed experience in all areas of dispute resolution including debt recovery, commercial disputes for SMEs, tenancy evictions, insolvency and property disputes. 

Following a number of acquisitions over the last few years, the firm has been heavily focusing on expanding and strengthening its legal teams and specialisms throughout the country.

Aberdein Considine offers property, legal and financial services to private and commercial clients across Scotland and the north of England.

Paul Jennings, Head of Commercial Real Estate at Aberdein Considine said: “Since joining the firm in 2007, Gemma has proved herself to be an outstanding lawyer.

As the North East commercial property market continues its recovery, Gemma’s real estate expertise and knowledge is in greater demand than ever, and her promotion to Partner is a reflection of her value to the firm, and the high regard in which she held by clients.”

Euan McSherry, Head of Dispute Resolution at Aberdein Considine added:

Carly’s appointment last year was a critical part of a wider investment in strengthening our Dispute Resolution practice, an area which has been expanding rapidly and continues to grow as businesses seek the highest quality of advice in an uncertain world. She is a highly regarded lawyer and her promotion is extremely well deserved.”
